    Description

    Mary Blair Song of the South Watermelon Patch Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1946). Mary Blair spent a week in Atlanta and other Georgia locations doing preliminary research for Song of the South. John Canemaker writes in his book The Art and Flair of Mary Blair that she did artwork for costume designs, settings, and moods for both the live action and animated segments. She received billing with Claude Coats for Backgrounds and Color Stylist. This is an amazing concept art piece of gouache on light board of 12" x 9". The back of the artwork is labeled with production number 2029 and 109. Pinholes are in the corners. This exceptional study of a watermelon patch and Georgia scenery is stunning; you can almost see Br'er Rabbit walking in this painting. Fine condition.
