(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Vibrant original concept storyboard painting by Mary Blair featuring Alice from Alice in Wonderland, which depicts the instantly recognizable title character in her blue dress from an aerial viewpoint, showing her seated in tremendous size after growing high above the canopy of Tulgey Wood. The painting is rendered with an array of lush and verdant greens, while offering an entirely unique perspective and scenario not found in the final Disney product. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 19.25 x 8.75 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. A beautiful panorama storyboard from the classic Disney fantasy.
Blair was a concept artist for Disney during the 1940s and early 1950s, working on designs for such films as Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Alice in Wonderland. She also created designs for several Disney attractions (including It's a Small World), and her largest work ever, the multi-story mosaic in Disney World's Contemporary Hotel concourse.
