A delightful introduction for children to Mary Blair, Walt Disney's favorite artist, who contributed color styling and inspirational artwork for many of the classic Disney animated films of the 40's and 50's and then returned to the studio in the 60's as an Imagineer. Walt said Mary used colors he didn't know existed. This book's charming illustrations capture not only Mary's color sense but her evolving fashion sense as well.

Description


Amy Guglielmo, Jacqueline Tourville, and Brigette Barrager team up to tell the joyful and unique story of the trailblazing Disney artist Mary Blair.

Mary Blair lived her life in color: vivid, wild color.

From her imaginative childhood to her career as an illustrator, designer, and animator for Walt Disney Studios, Mary wouldn't play by the rules. At a time when studios wanted to hire men and think in black and white, Mary painted twinkling emerald skies, peach giraffes with tangerine spots, and magenta horses that could fly.

She painted her world.
