Description

'Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo'—Cinderella receives her elegant coach

(Walt Disney Studios, 1950) Gorgeous original concept painting by Mary Blair featuring Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother from Cinderella, showing the 'Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo' song sequence as the godmother turns a pumpkin into a gleaming royal coach. Vividly cast in shades of blue and white against a moonlit sky, the glowing new coach dominates the center of the painting, with Cinderella, her dog Bruno, and three mice-turned-horses looking on as the fairy godmother casts her magical spell. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 10 x 9.25 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. A masterful piece of conceptual artwork representing one of Cinderella's most memorable scenes.

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.
