It hung in Mary's home, and has been in several global exhibits. It can be seen on page 73 in the book Magic, Color, Flair: The World of Mary Blair by John Canemaker. The painting is in gouache on board measuring 16" x 20". This Blair personally owned painting is framed with glass and hand-signed in the bottom right.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
