    Peter Pan Étude de personnage pour une sirène peinte par Mary Blair (Walt Disney, 1953). « Les sirènes aimaient beaucoup Peter. Wendy voulut devenir leur amie, mais elles ne l'aimaient pas. Peut-être parce qu'elle n'avait pas de queue. » Les sirènes de Mary Blair font l'admiration des amateurs, et ses travaux pour Peter Pan ont servi à illustrer l'album jeunesse de Dave Barry et Ridley Pearson Walt Disney's Peter Pan en 2009. Elle s'est livrée à plusieurs essais de palettes différentes pour les sirènes, peut-être pour mettre en scène des personnalités et des humeurs différentes. Le lot proposé est une superbe étude préliminaire montrant une sirène qui se repose sur un rocher du Lagon des Sirènes. Peinte à la gouache sur un carton de 20 x 23 cm, elle présente des marques de manipulation, des trous d'épingle dans les coins et une pliure au centre qui ne semble pas avoir affecté l'image et a pu se trouver là avant qu'elle ne soit peinte. Assez bon état.
    Peter Pan Mermaid Concept Painting by Mary Blair Original Art (Walt Disney, 1953). "The mermaids were quite fond of Peter. Wendy tried to make friends with them, but they did not like her. Perhaps because she did not have a tail." Mary Blair's mermaids are beloved by her fans and her concept art for Peter Pan served as the cover art of the children's book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Walt Disney's Peter Pan (2009). She experimented with different color palettes for the mermaids, perhaps to showcase different personality and/or moods. This is an outstanding Mary Blair Color Key/concept painting of a mermaid resting on a rock in Mermaid Lagoon. The art is in gouache on board measuring 8" x 9". The piece shows handling wear, pinholes on the corners and a groove or crack though the center of the image that does not appear to have damaged the image and may have been in the board prior to being painting. Very Good condition.
