    Retta Scott - Children's Book Illustration Samples Group of 3 (c. 1950s-60s). After leaving Walt Disney Studios, Retta Scott (1916-1990) did a great deal of work in children's books and greeting cards. She illustrated the famous Cinderella Little Golden book, as well as Cinderella Book of Puppets. This group has three gouache on paper samples of her children's book work. Two paintings of Fairies and Pixies are matted in one common mat. Each of these paintings is hand-signed by Retta. Double matted with mat openings of 6" x 5". A third Pixie painting is on paper glued to board measuring 8" x 10". Back of the double-matted paintings reads "Retta Scott Worcester (Personal Portfolio)." On the back of the other painting her name and address is written in her handwriting. Mats are overall 13" x 16" and 15" x 11". These were part of her artist's portfolio, which means she was proud of these detailed, brilliantly colored paintings. Minor handling. Very Good condition. From the Retta Scott Archives.
