(Walt Disney Studios, 1950) Beautiful original concept painting by Mary Blair of Cinderella’s castle, which shows the magnificent castle and its array of towers with surrounding forest and a starry night sky of varying shades of green and gray. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 10 x 9.75 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners and some soiling to borders. Along with Mickey Mouse, Cinderella’s fairy tale castle is perhaps the most iconic image of the Walt Disney brand. A magnificent piece of conceptual artwork that embodies the spirit of the Walt Disney universe.
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.
