    Mary Blair Cinderella Concept/Color Key Original Art (Walt Disney, 1950). "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" Put forward in this lot is a Color Key/concept piece by Disney Legend Inductee, Mary Blair (1911 - 1978). The 12th animated feature film from the Walt Disney Pictures, Cinderella, had a limited release on 2/15/50 before being released nationwide on 3/4/50. Blair, along with Claude Coats, John Hench, and Don DaGradi were Color Stylists on Cinderella. Color keying is an integral part of high-end productions. This Mary Blair Color Key features the Fairy Godmother and Cinderella, rendered in a style that is pure Mary Blair. Blair first began animation and color design on major films in 1943 and would continue to work on animated films for Disney for a full decade. At the request of Walt Disney, who highly regarded her innate sense of color styling, Mary Blair began work on Disney's new attraction, "It's a Small World." This piece is mixed media on black paper, the artwork is enclosed in a glass-fronted frame of 13.5" x 12" with a fabric covered matboard. The mat has an aperture of 9" x 8". A great vintage painting not to be missed by aficionados of Mary Blair and her illustrious Disney career. Condition is Fine.
