Tonight I learned something new about a Cinderella book I have in my collection. Again I used Google to find interesting stuff about Cinderella. I found this website that has images from the book and a little info about the artist who illustrated this book.
Her name was Retta Scott, born in Omak, Washington, on February 23, 1916, she worked for a short period for Disney and she was the studio’s first woman animator. She worked on Bambi and Dumbo and as a freelance artist for the Disney studio she illustrated “Cinderella” (A Big Golden Book).
Here are some of the illustrations (click any image to enlarge) she made for this Cinderella book, published in 1950 to tie in with the Disney film. Retta Scott died August 26, 1990, at her home in Foster City, California.
