Mary Blair's (American Artist) 100th Birthdays Today | Google Logo Today | Mary Blair's Biodata

Mary Blair (October 21, 1911 - July 26, 1978), born Mary Robinson, was an American artist best remembered today for work done for The Walt Disney Company. Blair produced striking concept art for such films as Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Song of the South and Cinderella.

Her style also lives on through the character designs for the Disney attraction It's a Small World, the fiesta scene in El Rio del Tiempo in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase, as well as an enormous mosaic inside Disney's Contemporary Resort. Several of her illustrated children's books from the 1950s have never been out of print, such as I Can Fly by Ruth Krauss. Blair was honored as a Disney Legend in 1991, one of the first women to be given the honor. In honor of her contribution to art and animation, the Google Doodle of October 21, 2011 was based on her artwork.
