    Description

    Alice in Wonderland Book Art Painted Backgrounds (Walt Disney, c. 1990s).
    In 1951 Walt Disney released its 13th animated feature film, Alice in Wonderland. While the film was critically panned on its initial release, it has since been regarded as one of Disneys greatest animated classics, notably one of the biggest cult classics in the animation medium. Alice, The Mad Hatter, The White Rabbit, and The Queen of Hearts make regular appearances at the Disney theme parks. Disney would release a number of childrens books based on Alice in Wonderland. We have two wonderful background paintings from Disneys Alice in Wonderland childrens book series in this lot. The artwork was hand-painted using gouache on heavy illustration paper affixed to Crescent illustration board. The artwork measures 10.25" x 12" with an image area of 8.25" x 8.75" and 11.5" x 12.25" with an image area of 10.75" x 11.25". Alice in Wonderland production art is arguably very rare. This is actual working production art and thus will show normal usage, some tape and tape residue, small pinholes (marginally in the image area on one piece), minor handling, and edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
