Estimate: $12000+


(Walt Disney Studios, 1950) Brilliant original concept storyboard painting by Mary Blair featuring the coach from Cinderella, showing the magical horse-drawn carriage traveling away from the royal palace mere moments after the stroke of midnight. The large painting shows the moonlit coach with its driver and four white horses rushing over a bright purple bridge, with the water of the river below casting reflections of the overhead stars and full moon. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on an 19.75 x 8.5 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. A stylish oversized piece from the hand of one of Disney's master concept painters.

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.
