    Alice in Wonderland Walrus and Oysters Color Key Concept Painting by Mary Blair (Walt Disney, 1951). "Little oysters, little oysters? But answers there are none! And this was scarcely all because, they'd been eaten!" In this Mary Blair concept Color Key, the Walrus has taken his hat off, put down his menu, and is ready to begin dinner. The baby oysters sitting at his table are unaware they are the main entrée. This story was narrated to Alice by Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Outstanding palette of color on this Mary Blair-signed original Color Key painting from Alice in Wonderland. Gouache on illustration board measuring 8" x 6". Pinholes in the corners and minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
