    Mary Poppins Painted Preliminary Background Original Art (Walt Disney, 1964). "Mary Poppins, you look beautiful!" "Do you really think so?" This is the dialogue between Mary and Bert right after they jump into the sidewalk chalk artwork. This will lead them to the "Jolly Holiday for Mary" song sequence, carousel ride, and fox hunt scenes. This is a very rare preliminary background for these animated scenes. Bert sings to Mary, "Have you ever seen grass so green?" The art is painted in gouache on background board measuring 16" x 12". The number 2165 is written in the bottom border. Backgrounds for the animated sequences in this film were painted by Al Dempster, Don Griffith, Bill Layne, Art Riley, and Frank Armitage -- a pretty impressive roster of artists! This beautiful background has a small amount of paper loss in the bottom border, well away from the painted area. Minor handling wear and a bottom border tear. Very Good condition.
