Mary Blair concept art of Peter Pan's war dance in the Indian Village
(Walt Disney Studios, 1953) Marvelous original concept painting by Mary Blair of Peter Pan, John, and the Lost Boys dancing around the fire in Neverland's Indian Village. Accomplished in tempera on 9.75 x 8.75 artist’s board, the remarkable landscape is dominated by tipis, tall evergreens, and a totem pole set against a bright orange sky. Whimsical plumes of black-and-white smoke fill the air as the boys—cast in shadows—dance around the fire. Blazingly done in greens, oranges, and purples, Blair's painting demonstrates masterful use of the secondary colors. 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, the multi-story mosaic in Disney World's Contemporary Hotel concourse.
