    Mary Blair Alice in Wonderland Walrus Concept Art (Walt Disney, 1951). "Oh she's curious!" "Oh the oysters were curious too and you remember what happened to them!" says Tweedledee and Tweedledum to Alice, to hold her attention. They proceed to tell her the story of the Walrus and the Carpenter. Original concept painting by Disney Legend Inductee Mary Blair of the Walrus, painted in gouache on board measuring 8" x 6". The Walrus is seen just entering the ocean, twirling his cane, where he is about to meet the curious oysters. Fantastic bright color palette on this Mary Blair original! A great yellow sky dominates this mini-masterpiece. Matted with an opening size of 7" x 6". Joe Hale has written the artwork description on the reverse. Pinholes in corners, minor handling wear. Very Good condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
