    Description

    Mary Blair Peter Pan Mermaids Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1953). "The Mermaids were quite fond of Peter. Wendy tried to make friends with them, but they did not like her, perhaps because she did not have a tail! Suddenly, the lagoon grew a particularly nasty shade of dark (as Captain Hook had arrived)." This is the prose in the book Walt Disney's Peter Pan retold by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson with images from Mary Blair's artwork to illustrate the book. Mary Blair's Mermaids are much-loved by fans. You see them in many different colors, as she experimented with the palette, perhaps to showcase their moods. Peter Pan with the Mermaids artwork by Mary Blair was used as this book's cover. This is an outstanding Mary Blair concept painting of Peter Pan with his beloved Mermaids, painted in gouache on board measuring 9.5" x 7.5", with stunning colors. We have not seen many of the Mermaids with Peter. Minor handling and edge wear. Pinholes in corners. Very Good condition.
