    Description

    Mary Blair So Dear to My Heart Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1949). This film told the story of a young boy named Jeremiah and his pet lamb named Danny. Mary Blair did the art direction and color styling on this film along with John Hench and Dick Kelsey. In John Canemaker's book The Art and Flair of Mary Blair: An Appreciation, he writes, "Blair's sophisticated motifs recall the work of Grandma Moses. Her paintings for this film displayed all four seasons." This remarkable Mary Blair original showcases Tildy and the lamb Danny by the farmhouse with barn behind it. The stunning orange colors through this painting showcase the Fall season, along with the haystacks on the right side. Circular concept art pattern in watercolor/gouache on Crescent illustration board of 12" x 10". The number 41 is written on top left corner. The colors on this painting are incredible! Pinholes in corners and minor handling, otherwise Very Good condition.
