Panorama concept painting of the Darlings' night flight over London
(Walt Disney Studios, 1953) Wonderful original panoramic concept painting by Mary Blair of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy, John, and Michael soaring over London en route to the island of Neverland. Accomplished in tempera on 19 x 9 artist’s board, the scene stunningly portrays Peter Pan and Tinker Bell teaching the Darling children to fly, leading them on a starry night flight over foggy London as they head toward Big Ben and London Bridge. The characters are shadows set against the dark night sky in this expertly accomplished panorama, the landscape illuminated by a full moon and twinkling stars. 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.
