    Description

    Alice in Wonderland Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1951). "I wonder which way I ought to go" says young Alice in this Walt Disney animated feature. Have you been searching for a truly great original animation drawing of Alice? Look no further, because this is it! This is a wonderful full-figure 16 field drawing in graphite, with a light brown underdrawing of her head and hair, and red pencil added to her lips. Walt Disney had wanted to produce a combination live-action/animated version of this Lewis Carroll classic for years. In fact, one of Disney's earliest efforts, tracing back to the Laugh-O-Gram studio in Kansas City, was a series of Alice Comedies, short silent films starring a live-action Alice interacting with animated characters; they began in 1923. After years of development and wartime interruptions, Walt realized the only way to properly present the story was to fully animate it, and in 1946, work began on this Disney Classic. The pleasingly well-centered drawing of Alice has an approximate figure size of 7", with the number 63 written in the lower right corner. Condition is Very Good, with minor handling and a few soft creases in the lower left.
