    Mary Blair Cinderella Coach and Castle Concept/Color Key Painting (Walt Disney, 1950). "Cinderella went to the ball with a promise to return home before midnight, before all the magic went away," writes Cynthia Rylant in the Walt Disney Cinderella book that is completely filled with illustrations by Mary Blair. This is an outstanding Mary Blair (1911 - 1978) original concept/Color Key painting of Cinderella's Coach arriving to the King's Castle for the Ball. It's an amazing painting that showcases the Coach, the Castle, and a sky full of promise! Interesting to note that the same scene LEAVING the Castle after midnight is in the great Didier Ghez book The Hidden Art of Disney's Mid-Century Era - The 1950s - 60s on page 87. In this painting, the coach is all done in black. Amazing subtle contrast in color to tell the story of the painting. The detail of color on the castle and throughout the painting is simply breathtaking! Gouache on illustration board measuring 9" x 10.5". Tack holes in all four corners, minor handling and staining in the outer borders. In Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
