    Alice in Wonderland Cheshire Cat Painted Illustration (Walt Disney, c. 1950s). "You're a CAT!" "I'm a Cheshire Cat!" An original one-of-a-kind painting of the Cheshire Cat from the hand of Mr. Harold Whitaker (1920 - 2013). Mr. Whitaker was a longtime well-known British animator who worked on Mickey Mouse Weekly for three years, including doing covers; this painting dates from that time. This UK weekly published 920 issues from 1936 until 1957. It was published first by Wilbank Productions, and then Odhams Press, using full color photogravure prints in its publication. This is an original gouache illustration painted edge-to-edge on light board measuring 9.5" x 7.5". The ever-grinning Cheshire Cat is approximately 6". Fine condition.
