Description

    Mary Blair "It's a Small World" Disneyland Painting (Walt Disney, 1964). Mary Blair (1911-1978) was inducted as a Disney Legend in 1991. John Hench said of Ms. Blair, "Walt really had an enormous respect for Mary's taste. There were few people that he thought as much of. Nothing ever went wrong with her color styles. She was impeccable. No matter what she touched, it came out glowing." This is an original gouache on paper painting from the hand of Mary Blair of the Small World Facade detail measuring 14" x 18". It was done for the "Small World" exhibit in Fantasyland section of Disneyland. This exact piece was held by Walt Disney and shown on the Wonderful World of Color episode called "Disneyland Around the Seasons," which can be found on YouTube. It was one of Walt Disney's last appearances on the show, displaying new attractions at Disneyland. He holds this exact painting at approximately the 1:35 mark into the episode. "It's a Small World" opened in Disneyland on 6/28/66, after first opening at the 1964 New York World's Fair in the UNICEF Pavilion. The painting was originally sold in the 1980s at The Disneyland Gallery in New Orleans Square at Disneyland. The original COA from this gallery is included with the art. Bottom of the painting is noted © The Walt Disney Company. Matted with an opening size of 14" x 17" and framed with Plexiglas. Fine condition.
