Description

The mermaids of Neverland—a tropical Blair panoramic concept painting

(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Tremendous original panoramic concept painting by Mary Blair for Peter Pan, which shows several mermaids at Mermaid Lagoon. A beautiful sinking sun sets the scene: a group of five lovely and carefree mermaids enjoy themselves as they lounge on tidal rocks at their favorite Neverland gathering place: Mermaid Lagoon. Accomplished in tempera on 19 x 9.5 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. 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. A gorgeous, tropical panoramic concept artwork by a Disney legend.
