“Walt said that I knew about colors he had never heard of before.” -Mary Blair
Mary Blair is an influential artist who, with a few brushstrokes, defined the look and feel of a Disney movie. Her bold color choices and unique art style is instantly recognizable, seen in classics such as Cinderella, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and more. Blair also worked on designing park attractions, unquestionably seen in It’s A Small World, which is purely her both in style and concept. She also illustrated many Little Golden Books, such as I Can Fly. There is no doubt that Blair’s stunning style still influences film today.
“The way she painted—in a lot of ways she was still a little girl. Walt was like that… You could see he could relate to children—she was the same way.” -Rolly Crump
