    Peter Pan Mermaids 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 concept art for Peter Pan was used to illustrate the children's book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Walt Disney's Peter Pan (2009). Her artwork of the Mermaids was featured in the book as well as on the cover. Mary Blair's mermaids are beloved by her fans. 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 three mermaids in Mermaid Lagoon, off the cost of Neverland. The art is in gouache on board measuring 20" x 8". This is one of Mary Blair's larger-sized Color Keys. Interesting that the image displays three mermaids. One in hues of purple, on in hues of blue, and the third in a light yellow. Pinholes in the corners and minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
