Description

Panoramic painting of Alice in Wonderland's classic tea party scene

(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Spectacular original panorama concept painting by Mary Blair featuring Alice from Alice in Wonderland, showing the classic title character seated at the head of a long table during the classic 'tea party' scene. Countless teacups, saucers, mugs, and teapots of every shape, size, and color are splayed out upon the tablecloth, with blue chairs haphazardly arranged around the table. Accomplished in tempera on 18.25 x 9 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. A large and dramatic piece of Blair's original artwork for an iconic Alice in Wonderland scene.

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.
