Description


(Walt Disney Studios, 1950) Exquisite original concept painting by Mary Blair for Cinderella, showing the title character fleeing from the castle in her white ball gown, with her lead foot bare and a single glass slipper left glowing on the winding staircase. An impressive rendering of the interior castle just moments before midnight, Blair highlights the room in gorgeous purple detail, adding chandelier, balustrades, floor pattern, and even quizzical looks from the row of castle guards. Accomplished in tempera on 19.75 x 9.5 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes to borders. Blair was a concept artist for Disney during the 1940s and early 1950s, working on designs for such films as Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Alice in Wonderland. She also created designs for several Disney attractions (including It's a Small World), and her largest work ever, the multi-story mosaic in Disney World's Contemporary Hotel concourse. A striking work of art for one of Disney’s most enchanting fairytales. Learn more about our Animation Expert, Harry Kleiman.
