    Description

    Mary Blair It's a Small World Concept Art (Walt Disney, 1964). In John Canemaker's book The Art and Flair of Mary Blair, chapter six opens with Marty Sklar saying, "Walt remembered artwork for children made for Saludos Amigos. He said 'We have to get Mary to do it!'" Mary Blair had already left Disney Studios to do children's books, greeting cards, and other jobs. This project for the 1964 New York World's Fair (and later Disneyland) inspired Blair to new heights. This original Blair concept painting of the "Children of a Small World" (after all) is produced in tempera and watercolor on a black board. It is glass front framed with a mat opening of 13" x 10", and a frame size of 20" x 17". The subtle mixing colors of blue, yellow, and green are magnificent on the black background in this painting. In Fine condition.
