    Description

    Mary Blair "It's a Small World" Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1964). "It's a small world after all!" So the song goes! The "It's a Small World" exhibit originally opened at the 1964 New York World's Fair, at the UNICEF Pavilion sponsored by Pepsi. May Blair created additional designs and paintings when this exhibit was moved to Disneyland. It opened in the park on 6/28/66. Today this attraction is in virtually every Disneyland theme park around the globe. This is a very attractive Mary Blair original concept painting for "It's a Small World," painted with gouache on a LARGE black board measuring 15" x 20". Interesting use of color palettes and use of gold paint against the black board make this piece stand out. It's one of the largest exterior concept paintings we have seen to date. There are pinholes in all four corners, with minor handling and edge wear. Fine condition.
