Amazing Mary Blair concept paintings for Alice in Wonderland






"Rare original Mary Blair color concept paintings for Alice in Wonderland - (Walt Disney Studios 1951) An incredibly rare set of nine preliminary thumbnail concept paintings by Mary Blair featuring some of the most iconic imagery from the film. Blair was responsible for the look and style of this feature. Accomplished in gouache on paper, each measuring 3 in. x 3 ¾ in. Alice is shown with the Cheshire Cat, Alice peering into the Tulgey Wood, the Queen’s guards, the Rabbit hole, two views of the Rabbit running, and others. This set of studies was published in Lella Smith’s book, Once Upon a Time: Walt Disney [Prestel, 2007], in which Smith noted, “the experimentation involved in [Disney’s film making] process is evident in the brilliant colored studies done by Mary Blair for Alice in Wonderland.” source
