DescriptionMary Blair Alice in Wonderland Queen of Hearts Court Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1951). "Never mind all that. Get to the point where I lose my temper. Are you ready for a sentence? OFF WITH HER HEAD!" says the Queen of Hearts to the White Rabbit who is addressing the court with the charges being brought against Alice. This is a stunning oversized Mary Blair (1911 - 1978) original concept painting of the court scene. The painting features the King and Queen presiding of Alice's trial. Their portraits are hung on the castle walls on their respective sides. The cards stand guard all around Alice in her witness box. Gouache on board of 14" x 13", an unusually large-sized concept painting by Mary Blair. Alice leaning up in the witness box is adorable! Pinholes in corners, minor handling and edge wear. Overall Very Good condition.
