Mary Blair – 4.

This continues my series of color stills from some of the beautiful work in the exquisite Japanese book on Mary Blair, The Colors of Mary Blair. If you have the resources to buy this book, you should.

- The big three for Mary Blair, as a designer of Disney animation, were Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. We’ll spend all of this post on Cinderella. Many of these illustrations made it into John Canemaker‘s invaluable book, The Art and Flair of Mary Blair. Others have made it into a Cinderella storybook with text by Cynthia Ryant. Still others appear only in this Japanese edition.

    Cinderella in her work dress is my favorite heroine imagery. I see in them a quiet strength, a resolve to make the best of an awful circumstance while always laying the groundwork so when a better opportunity is available it can be explored. Thank you for sharing these images especially the Marc Davis designs.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative
    to read?
