    Description

    Mary Blair Peter Pan Concept Painting Original Art (Walt Disney, 1953). A spectacular original concept piece by Mary Blair (1911 - 1978). Blair joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 1940, and worked briefly on art concepts for Dumbo, an early version of Lady and the Tramp, and a second version of Fantasia titled "Baby Ballet" which was not released until the late 1990s. In 1941 Blair traveled to several South American countries with Walt and Lillian Disney, and other artists on a research tour. During the trip her watercolors so impressed Walt, that he appointed her art supervisor for the animated feature films Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros. Mary Blair was inducted into the Disney hall of fame program as an official Disney Legend in 1991 along with Carl Barks, Fess Parker and Julie Andrews. In this lot is an extraordinary concept piece showing the entrance to the underground home of the lost boys in Peter Pan. The painting is done in the unmistakable style of Mary Blair, familiar to anyone that has been on or seen "It's a Small World" at Disneyland. The concept art shows one of the Lost Boys in his "bunny pajamas." Noted in pencil along the bottom of the painting is; Entrance to Boys Home Underground. A photo of this piece was on display in the Disney Museum during The Art and Flair of Mary Blair exhibit. I feature animators John Hench on the left holding this painting with Claude Coats on the left and Wilfred Jackson in the middle. This gorgeous painting is enclosed in a glass-fronted frame of 23" x 21" with a matboard aperture of 11.5" x 10". Frame sold as-is. Fine condition.
