Alice in Wonderland (1951)

Alice in Wonderland (1951) 
original production animation drawing 
red, blue and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 6" x 8.25"
This outstanding rough animation drawing of the Queen of Hearts was created by Disney animator Frank Thomas in development of a scene in the animated feature based on the stories by Lewis Carroll. Frank Thomas, one of the core group of master animators Walt Disney designated his "Nine Old Men," supervised the animation of the Queen throughout the croquet game sequence; this scene appears after she has made her play and receives a round of applause. The drawing is technically a "rough" yet it is detailed and polished with numerous color notations for inking and painting of cels. Frank Thomas' work is seen in the extensive red pencil construction of the figure. The animator wrote the designations "45" at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene; "2069 10.0 349" written in red pencil at lower right identifies the production, sequence and scene number.
