The haughty Queen of Hearts invites Alice to the strangest game of croquet ever played, in this original rough concept drawing. The Queen of Hearts is a charter member of Disney's Villains club. This original drawing features full-figure images in graphite and the image measures 5.5" x 6.5". This drawing could have been created as a rough for a model sheet or simply an animator's practice or starting frame.

ABOUT THE CHARACTERS:
Alice is a fictional character and protagonist of Lewis Carroll's children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass (1871). A child in the mid-Victorian era, Alice unintentionally goes on an underground adventure after accidentally falling down a rabbit hole into Wonderland; in the sequel, she steps through a mirror into an alternative world.
The Queen of Hearts In the Disney animated feature Alice in Wonderland, the Queen appears, as Alice puts it in a moment of temper, as "a fat, pompous, bad tempered old tyrant". The character was voiced by Verna Felton. She is portrayed as a haughty sadist, who enjoys decapitating anyone who merely annoys her.
ABOUT THE PRODUCTION:
Alice in Wonderland is a 1951 American animated musical fantasy-adventure film produced by Walt Disney Productions and based on the Alice books by Lewis Carroll. The 13th release of Disney's animated features, the film premiered in London on July 26, 1951, and in New York City on July 28, 1951. The film features the voices of Kathryn Beaumont as Alice, Sterling Holloway as the Cheshire Cat, Verna Felton as the Queen of Hearts, and Ed Wynn as the Mad Hatter. Walt Disney first attempted unsuccessfully to adapt Alice into an animated feature film during the 1930s, and he revived the idea in the 1940s. The film was originally intended to be a live-action/animated film; however, Disney decided to make it an all-animated feature in 1946.
