    Description

    Mary Blair The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad Headless Horseman and Ichabod Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1949). Mary Blair was all about interpretation of color. Her incredible talent is evident in this stylized concept painting of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman, in their fateful meeting on Halloween Night. The combination of black ghost-like sky and full moon night, set against the glow of a thrown flaming pumpkin and awash with blues and muted reds make for a true masterpiece. The Headless Horseman is riding a horse that looks very similar to the horse Brom Bones rides, Gunpowder. A very large concept painting for Ms. Blair! Matted with an opening size of 19" x 8"; framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 28" x 16.5". Very Good condition.
