(Disneyland, 1960s) A set of three original paintings and one drawing created by Imagineer Ed Kohn for a series of changing portraits to be used within Disneyland's "Haunted Mansion". The three paintings depict three men in various poses and attire, and the pencil drawing shows Kohn's concept for a man transforming into a group of vegetables. Two of the concepts are signed by Kohn along the lower-edge, and one of the other paintings has Kohn's name on the back of the board. Each design is mounted to artist's board with a pin-hole in the top-edge likely from their initial use. It appears that Kohn has painted over brownlines of the characters, which was a common practice when adding color to the original designs. These designs range in size from the smallest 7"x6.75" painting to the largest 11.25"x9.25" painting. The set is in overall very good condition with minor surface wear from use.
