Description


(Walt Disney Studios, 1953) Immensely desirable original concept painting by Mary Blair for Peter Pan, depicting Tinker Bell trapped in Wendy Darling’s bedroom dresser drawer when Peter Pan goes to retrieve his lost shadow. The painting is realized magically, with the miniature sprite surrounded by pixie dust, and the green bedroom light illuminating the drawer’s contents: a thimble, scissors, and a sewing spool with needles. Accomplished in tempera on 9.25 x 8.25 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners and a small nick to lower left.

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.
