Description

(Walt Disney Studios, 1950) Original concept painting by Mary Blair featuring Cinderella and Prince Charming from Cinderella, showing them standing atop a bridge behind the castle during their magical night. The impressive panorama features the couple in gleaming white at center, surrounded by dark purple, blue, and black hues of the night. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 19.5 x 8.75 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. A stylish oversized piece from the hand of one of Disney's master concept painters.

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.
