Description

(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Attractive original concept painting by Mary Blair of Alice in Wonderland’s perplexing Tulgey Wood. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 10 x 9.75 illustration board, the scene vividly depicts Alice seated on a tree limb, attempting to make sense of the assortment of multicolored directional signs hanging from a tree. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners and some soiling to borders.

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.
