Item 1014 - Pirates of the Caribbean ride concept painting by Marc Davis Catalog 560 (Jul 2019)

(Walt Disney Studios, circa 1960s) Immensely rare and desirable original concept painting by Marc Davis for Disneyland's famous dark ride attraction Pirates of the Caribbean, depicting a pair of pirates aboard a sinking jolly boat, one man still rowing and the other perched atop the bow, with their loot, several jugs of rum, floating away. Davis captures the otherwise desperate scene with great humor and detail, as neither pirate appears overly concerned with their gloomy predicament or the loss of their alcoholic bounty, and the artwork's bold style and carefree temperament is in keeping with that of the long-running attraction and Disney's blockbuster film series. Accomplished in ink and watercolor on untrimmed 16.5 x 13.25 heavyweight art paper, with Davis signing in pencil in the lower right. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners.

One of Disney's Nine Old Men, the legendary core animators of early Disney films, Davis joined Disney in 1935 as an apprentice animator on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. He continued to work on classic films like Bambi, Cinderella, and Alice in Wonderland, and then later transferred to Disney’s Imagineering team where he contributed whimsical story and character concepts for Disneyland attractions like the Haunted Mansion, It’s a Small World, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Davis is probably best known as the father of some of Disney’s most memorable animated women, including Cruella De Vil from One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, and Tinker Bell from Peter Pan.
