(Disneyland, c.1954-55) An original concept painting of the interior of Disneyland's Golden Horseshoe Saloon by Imagineer Sam McKim. For this artwork, McKim painted over a brownline print of his original pencil outlines to create this vibrant and easily recognizable image of the attraction. This original painting was more recently reproduced as decor for the Disneyland Hotel, as well as for commercial prints. This original artwork was officially sold through the Disney Gallery at Disneyland in 1988, and the painting is still in its original frame with a WED archive label attached to the reverse. Although McKim is best known to fans as the creator of the oversize souvenir maps that have become a Disneyland tradition, he also contributed to several attractions throughout the park, and some of the first paintings he created as an Imagineer were of the Golden Horseshoe. This painting has an image size of 25.5"x34.5" within a 38.5"x46.5" frame. The condition is very good, with some expected fading to the brownline from age, and some moisture discoloration to the back of the frame. The painting is signed by McKim in the lower-left corner.
