Here is link to museum with details about the current Mary Blair show now in San Francisco:
There's a good biography of Mary Blair on the "Magic of Mary Blair" website run by her nieces, Maggie Richardson and Jeanne Chamberlain
Here's Stuart with the Mary Blair original from his own personal collection that he loaned for the exhibit. It's an illustration work, circa 1930s and untitled. We don't know much about it ... a mystery waiting to be solved.
There was a lovely series of painting of the seasons ...
And this pretty landscape of winter shadows ...
Concept art on display included works from Peter Pan ...
Stuart liked this landscape from the South American trip that Blair went on with other Disney artists...
There are some special Mary Blair items featured in the museum's gift shop..
And this fun mural makes for a great photo op ..
Stuart was invited the special preview ... where he enjoyed meeting and talking with Mary Blair fans, colleagues and family members. Here he is in conference with Maggie Richardson, Mary Blair's niece.
