    Mary Blair Alice in Wonderland Mushroom Concept/Color Key Painting (Walt Disney, 1951). "You? Who are you!?" The hookah-smoking caterpillar makes a subtle appearance in this wonderful original concept painting by Disney Legend Mary Blair (1911 - 1978). Pointing his hookah mouthpiece condescendingly into the left side of the frame, this delightful piece exemplifies the character with only the simple depiction of an arm, but Alice's reaction certainly helps. The bold, flat colors for which Mary Blair is celebrated are on full display in this lovely image, showcasing her knack for painting foliage in bright, eye-catching hues. The piece is rendered elegantly in gouache on 9" x 8.5" illustration board, and it show minor handling and edge wear with light debris. There are pinholes in the corners, and the condition is Very Good.
