    Description

    Mary Blair "Children's Chorus" Painting Original Art (c. 1970s). John Canemaker wrote, "Walt's 'Discovery' of Mary Blair's great and multitudinous artistic gifts during the 1941 South American tour led him to assign her numerous projects, both inside and outside the studio during the war and post war years. Blair traveled often during this period to Mexico, Cuba, Ireland, and areas of the United States to gather pictorial material, creating dynamic pieces that still capture the imagination today." This is a rare Mary Blair original painting, created on gouache on Masonite board and burlap, measuring 12.5" x 18.25". This piece has been on numerous Mary Blair Fine Art museum exhibits globally. It also hung in her home. It can be seen on page 73 of John Canemaker's book Magic, Color, Flair: The World of Mary Blair. The painting is floated in a burlap mat, in the frame custom made by her husband, Lee Blair, measuring 18" x 21". The artwork is hand-signed by Blair. Original Mary Blair-signed paintings, from her personal collection, are as rare as they come! Frame is sold as-is; the condition of the artwork is Very Good. From the Mary Blair Family Trust Archives.
