    Description

    Mary Blair Peter Pan Neverland Concept/Color Key Illustration (Walt Disney, 1953). "There it is, Wendy. Second star to the right and straight on till morning." Peter Pan, Wendy, John and Michael follow the unforgettable directions to Neverland in this magnificent original concept/color key illustration by the hand of the marvelous Disney Legend Mary Blair (1911 - 1978). A very rare rendering in oil pastel on board, this is an image created in preparation for the painting that can be seen on page 115 in John Canemaker's book Magic Color Flair: The World of Mary Blair, featuring the same composition and color palette. This piece depicts the moment seen at the 20:30 mark of the animated adventure classic Peter Pan, when Neverland appears out of the stars. Peter Pan was the last Disney animated feature film on which Mary Blair lent her talents, her bold colors informing much of the fantastical elements in the final film. Disney director Wilfred Jackson once said of Mary's influence on the animators, "...even when the styling aspect of a picture was not especially stressed, we still drew or painted our own parts of the production differently than we would have done if we had seen no styling sketches at all..." Rich in vivid color in true Mary Blair fashion, this magnificent piece is framed under Plexiglas with a mat window size of 8" x 6.75" and an overall frame size of 15" x 13.5". The frame is sold as-is, and the piece shows minor handling. The condition overall is Very Good.
