(World's Fair, 1964) An original painting created by both Rolly Crump and Mary Blair featuring a child flying a kite, based on imagery from the "It's a Small World" attraction. This painting was created by Crump and Blair during the construction of "It's a Small World" for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. While Crump and Blair were in New York waiting for the remaining "Small World" set pieces to arrive during the construction of the attraction, they painted this artwork on a panel from one of the wooden shipping crates. This painting represents an incredible time in the creation of "It's a Small World" and depicts the artistry of two Disney Legends. The artwork is accomplished in acrylic on wood and features adhered matchsticks for the kite. According to Rolly, Mary did the painting and he added the matchsticks and embellishments. Mary liked his additions so much, she added his name to the bottom right-hand corner of the painting. The painting measures 41"x26.25" including the "frame", which is also part of the original shipping crate. The condition is very good with minor frame wear.
