ABOUT THE ART: (Walt Disney Studios, 1946) Nice original concept painting by Mary Blair for Song of the South, showing Uncle Remus passing by the Tar Baby on the road while singing 'Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.' Inspired by a classic folktale as told by Joel Chandler Harris in his 'Uncle Remus' stories, Blair expertly executes the Southern scene, stylishly rendering the blooming magnolia trees and fence along the road, with the subjects silhouetted against the green-hued sky. Accomplished in tempera on 9.75 x 9 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes at 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 ever, the multi-story mosaic in Disney World's Contemporary Hotel concourse. A superb conception of an Academy Award-winning scene by one of Disney's great artists—'Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah' would go on to win the Oscar for Best Original Song.
