Description

'Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo'—Cinderella's Fairy godmother casts her spell in a hand-painted scene by Mary Blair

(Walt Disney Studios, 1950) Fantastic original concept painting by Mary Blair featuring Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother from Cinderella, showing the 'Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo' song sequence as the godmother begins to turn a pumpkin into a gleaming royal coach. Vividly cast in shades of green and black against a moonlit sky, the fairy godmother raises her wand to cast her magical spell as Cinderella, wearing a pink dress, observes the glowing pumpkin. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 9 x 8.5 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. An excellent piece of concept art for 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.
