Description

(Walt Disney Studios, 1950) Rare original concept painting by Mary Blair of the chateau of Lady Tremaine, Cinderella's wicked stepmother, showing the stately home in the French countryside. Beautifully rendered by Blair, the house boasts sharply peaked red roofs and towers, a swan lake in the front yard, and a foreboding black forest in the background. Accomplished in tempera on 10 x 8.75 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. A very rare subject painted by a legendary Disney artist.

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.
