Personal Art

Mary Blair is most associated with her Disney art and accomplishments (namely Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and It's a Small World). However, it is her personal art that she did for family, friends, and special occasions that we would like to, now, also share with the world -- projects done for fun, fancy and pure pleasure -- Mary Blair without limits!! We hope you enjoy this unique collection of art as we have all our lives. It is our fondest wish that people everywhere will see in Mary's art what Walt Disney saw nearly seventy-five years ago.

Many selections of Mary's personal art is now available through Art.com and Allposters.com.  The art can be ordered framed or unframed in various sizes.

Mary painted several Madonnas in her lifetime, especially at Christmastime. This bold and brilliant piece was painted in the mid-sixties – a “mod” Madonna surrounded by lambs and angels of shocking pink – Mary’s favorite color.

ORIGINAL MEDIUM:
Gouache on paper

 

An elegant and graceful Mary Blair composition from the late 60’s or early 70’s. Mary was fond of cats (and dogs) but her usual cats were the fluffy striped variety like her own over-sized orange cat “Ferrari”. These cats are a more sophisticated type – with wonderful design quality.

ORIGINAL MEDIUM:
Gouache on paper

 

A family favorite; this work was painted in the early 70’s by Mary for “no particular reason” (some of Mary’s most whimsical self-directed art comes from this period). It hung near her kitchen for all to enjoy when visiting the Blair home. So, whether you prefer chocolate or vanilla, you can have both with the Ice Cream Girl.
