Description"The Art of Lee Blair" Real Life Studies Original Art Group of 6 (Walt Disney, c. 1930s-50s). Lee Blair worked at the Walt Disney Studios on story development for Fantasia. He also was part of the group that traveled to South America with Walt Disney, and can be seen in the documentary South of the Border with Disney. Lee also had a well-established art career on his own. Here's a group of six original "real life" studies done in charcoal on paper ranging in size from 15.5" x 21.75" up to 19" x 25". All are full-figure images of people; most are old men, but there is one signed piece of a female athlete and one nude study of a young man. The paper is toned and very fragile, with handling wear with edge wear and tears, including some missing paper, away from the main images. Very rare! Fair condition. From the Mary Blair Family Trust.
