    Mary Blair Penelope and the 12 Months Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1940). Design artist Mary Blair's first work for the Disney Studios was on this unfinished project, written by Joe Grant and Dick Humer. Samples of her work on this project can be seen throughout the Charles Solomon book The Disney That Never Was. The story evolved from one theme to another, with the final storyline about Penelope being turned into an Imperial Russian Princess. This is an extremely rare ink and watercolor concept painting created for Penelope from the hand of Mary Blair. It's a remarkable early look into this woman's extraordinary career. Matted with an opening size of 8" x 8" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 16.75" x 16.75". Very Good condition.
