Description

Concept art of Alice, the Dodo, and other sea creatures, wonderfully rendered by Mary Blair

(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Playful original concept painting by Mary Blair featuring Alice from Alice in Wonderland, showing her on the beach with the Dodo bird and other creatures—including other birds, a lobster, and a starfish—during the 'steeple chase' sequence. The Dodo stands on a rock at center as the others run around him in the moonlit scene. Accomplished in tempera on 10 x 9 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners.

Mary 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.
