(Walt Disney Studios, 1953) Magnificent original concept storyboard painting by Mary Blair that features a remote Native American village in Peter Pan, depicting a nighttime view of the Neverland tribe’s open cliffside quarters. From the perspective of a forest observer, the scene portrays a cluster of large painted tipis, its interior illuminated by firelight and revealing a group of Indians and a central totem pole designed in the shape of an eagle. The painting, achieved mainly with subtle earth-tone coloring, focuses sharply on a yellow full moon and the bright and secret ceremony below. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 15 x 10.75 illustration board, which is marked in the lower border, “1 and 2.” In overall fine condition, with wear to edges. Provenance: Howard Lowery.

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, which includes It's a Small World and, her largest work ever, the multi-story mosaic in Disney World's Contemporary Hotel concourse.
