    Retta Scott - Children's Book Illustration (c. 1960s-70s). Retta Scott married a career Navy man and left the Disney Studio after 1946. She still did occasional projects for Disney, including her very famous Big Little Golden Book and Puppet Book for Cinderella. Like her friend Mary Blair, Retta worked in children's books and greeting cards on and off after she left Disney. This is a great one-of-kind painting she did for a children's book project. It's a very sweet painting of a little girl with a butterflies, with stunning detail. The art is in gouache on textured paper; it's matted with an opening size of 9.5" x 13", with an overall mat size of 15" x 20". Retta wrote her name and address on the back of the mat. Fine condition. From the Retta Scott Archives.
