    Mary Blair "Peruvian Hat Woman" Painting (c. 1970s). Mary and Lee Blair were part of the group of Disney Studio artists hand-chosen by Walt Disney to travel to South America. It was during this time that Mary developed her vibrant and colorful style. This is a rare original Mary Blair (1911-1978) painting entitled "Peruvian Hat Woman." It hung in Mary's home, and has been in several global exhibits. It can be seen on page 73 in the book Magic, Color, Flair: The World of Mary Blair by John Canemaker. The painting is in gouache on board measuring 16" x 20". This Blair personally owned painting is framed with glass and hand-signed in the bottom right. The museum exhibit piece is considered extremely rare in terms of Mary Blair original artwork. Frame is sold as-is, art condition is Very Good. From the Mary Blair Family Trust Archives.
