Lot 22: Disney Original Concept Painting From 1964 for ''It's a Small World'' by Mary Blair - Measures 20'' x 15''
27th July 2017
''It's a Small World'' original concept painting, created in 1964 for Walt Disney by Mary Blair, a ''Disney Legend'' who designed concept art for ''Cinderella'', ''Alice in Wonderland'' and ''Peter Pan''. Originally a pavilion at the 1964 World's Fair, ''It's a Small World'' captured the attention of Walt Disney, who commissioned Mary Blair to adapt it into a ride at Disneyland. Her subsequent artwork is presented here -- a gorgeous 1960s inspired castle-themed piece in colors of pink, green and gold against a contrasting black background. The entrance to the ride is clearly evident in the artwork, referencing Blair's mod-castle aesthetic with soft colors. Board measures 20'' x 15''. Light edge wear and pinholes at corners, otherwise near fine. Beautiful, large concept art for the iconic Disney attraction.
