Retta Scott - Sample Children's Book Illustration (c. 1950s-60s). After leaving Disney, Retta Scott did a great deal of work in Children's Books and Greeting Cards. She did the famous Cinderella Big Little Golden Book and Book of Puppets that came out a full year prior to the film's release. Here is an outstanding example of her work from a children's book project, a great Disney-like painting of a fairy with assorted animals and pixie characters. She was so proud of this painting, that it became part of her personal art portfolio when looking for work. Gouache on illustration board and matted, with an opening size of 8" x 10.5"; overall mat size is 13.5" x 16". On the back of the painting, she has written "Retta Scott Worcester (Personal Portfolio)" with her home address. Her New York Artist Representative's name and phone number is also on the back. Beautiful colors! Very Good condition. From the Retta Scott Archives.
