    "The Art of Retta Scott" Chinatown Painting Original Art (Walt Disney, c. 1950-60s). Retta Scott (1916 - 1990) was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2000. She married a Submarine Commander named Ben Worcester and began a career painting in watercolor during her travels with him. She sold these in local galleries, wherever she lived. Retta painted wherever her travels took her with her military husband. In this lot is a stunning Retta Scott original of what is believed to be a downtown scene in Chinatown in San Francisco. It is unsigned and untitled but comes directly from her estate. Painting is on watercolor board measuring 20" x 14". Minor handling and edge wear. Overall condition is Very Good.
