Présentation de l'éditeur

Vibrant, splendidly hued, and charming beyond compare, the work of Disney designer and illustrator Mary Blair is more than just acclaimed—it is adored. She has charmed generations with her whimsical creations, from stunning art direction for Cinderella and Peter Pan to the wowing and wonderful “It’s a Small World” ride at Disneyland. Magic Color Flair celebrates this Disney icon, tracing the evolution of her mesmerizing style and showcasing her work in gorgeous, full-color imagery.

Curated by award winning animation director and designer, John Canemaker, the Magic Color Flair is an authoritative celebration of Blair’s life work.  From her precocious paintings she made while studying at the renowned Chouinard Art Institute, to her concept drawings for Disney films, to her treasured Golden Books, delightful advertisements and large-scale installations. With annotations about her artistic process, Magic Color Flair gives readers an inside look to her bold and lively artistic process that yielded such loveable, and memorable work.

While at art school, Blair developed a dynamic style that emphasized drama and emotion. Her gift for visual storytelling caught the eye of Walt Disney himself, who loved her bold graphics, sophisticated whimsicality, and eye-catching use of color and who became a lifelong friend and champion of her work. This book accompanies the Walt Disney Family Museum’s 2014 Mary Blair exhibit of the same title.

Grande admiratrice de Mary Blair je n'ai pas hésité une seule seconde. C'est un très beau livre, il y a d'ailleurs des recherches de Mary Blair que je n'avais pas encore vu dans les autres livres consacrés à l'artiste. Je ne peux que le recommander.

HASH(0x960132a0) étoiles sur 5 More Mary Blair art 24 juillet 2014
Par Parka - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
When I bought this book, I was seriously confused by the other book The Art and Flair of Mary Blair: An Appreciation that was also coming out in the same month.

Magic Color Flair is actually the companion book to the exhibition of the same name that's held at The Walt Disney Family Museum from March 13 to September 7, 2014. This book is a 176-page hardcover.

The focus of this book is on the aesthetics of Mary Blair's art and design. The essay by John Canemaker reflects that, and if you have The Art and Flair of Mary Blair as well, you will find that there is quite an overlap of content. To get a fuller picture of Mary Blair's life, you have to get the other book.

Mary Blair's artworks are wonderfully produced in the book. They are printed huge, many are printed full page. They included artworks that she created for Disney and for her freelance jobs. You'll see art for Cinderella, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, "It's a Small World" exhibition and the Little Golden Books.

This is a fine artbook by itself. But if you just want to get one book, I would suggest getting The Art and Flair of Mary Blair: An Appreciation.

I feel that the selection of works is much better in the other book which are more striking and representative of Mary Blair, but that could be because I read that book first. There aren't much duplication in both books so you can still get both, but then there's this dissatisfaction of having to pay more money just to have a more complete collection.

4 out of 5 stars.

HASH(0x9538b054) étoiles sur 5 Love Mary Blair. Okay Art Book. 24 mai 2014
Par P. Romance - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was in a pickle. There were two Mary Blair artbooks - this one and The Art and Flair of Mary Blair (Updated Edition): An Appreciation (Disney Editions Deluxe) - that were coming out at roughly the same time and I was waffling on which one to buy. My reasoning for picking this one was because it had more pages. More pages = more art, right? After much deliberation, I finally got my art book in the mail today and sadly, I found myself feeling ho-hum.

There was nothing wrong with the contents per se. But as I flipped through the pages, I felt no excitement as I glanced through the images. Nothing really caught my eye. There were a few that I liked but not enough to offset my lack of interest. At the start, there will be a chance to read about the life of Mary Blair and how she became the popular artist to this day. So, impressively, for the rest of the book will be just art. This is definitely an art book. And most of the images spanned full pages! There were two Disney movies that were well documented - Cinderella and Peter Pan. So, don't expect much well-known Disney movies represented here. The rest was dedicated to lesser known works throughout her career. I found her later works to be my favorites.

The book itself is of decent quality. The pages are nice and glossy. They do seem to be a little bit grainy. The pictures are clear but underneath a light, you can see bits of weave in the paper. But you will only notice if you are looking for it. My other complaint would be that the dust jacket is cheap. You can see the indent in the jacket itself, from the title on the front cover, from being pressed on. So, for the price that Amazon is selling for, I would say it is reasonable. Just don't spend $40.

Now, take my rating with a grain of salt. If you are true blue Mary Blair fan, get it. But better yet, invest in the other artbook. That was truly published by Disney. I would also recommend this to aspiring artists looking for new styles of art. Others, pass this one by or check my video to see if you like what you see. In the end, this wasn't a keeper for my collection. I truly regret not buying the other book.

Note: This was not published by Disney Enterprise (like the artbooks for Frozen, Wreck-It-Ralph, etc). It was published by Walt Disney Family's Foundation.

HASH(0x95da09cc) étoiles sur 5 A gorgeous, informative book 9 août 2014
Par B. Ackley - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book serves as the exhibition Catalog to the Mary Blair exhibit at The Walt Disney Family Museum. Arguably best known for her work on Disneyland's "it's a small world" attraction as well as her commercial work in the 60's, "Magic Color Flair" serves as both biography, catalog and extraordinary commentary on Mary Blair's work. I was fortunate to visit the exhibit last month and found the book and the exhibit offered a wonderful overview of her work as a young artist followed by her time at Disney as well her commercial work for ad agencies and Little Golden Books.

Mr. Canemaker is both a fan and an expert on Blair. In this book he gives lots of insight into her history, the events that shaped her work as well as providing insightful commentary. Mary is remarkable for being a successful artist at Disney during a time dominated by men. The book's biography tells of her upbringing, Walt's interest in her art and her balance as both mother and artist. Along with the text are many pictures of her early paintings, family photos and newspaper clippings that all serve to illustrate how Mary's career began and developed. One really gets a sense of how she moved from strength to strength exploring design and color.

Mary's work is gorgeous and this book offers an excellent gallery of images. All the images from the exhibit are found here as well as lots pencil sketches and notes. In addition to her paintings She often created textile patterns and window displays for upscale stores. The author Included in the back of the book photos of several window displays and scarves she created. A nice bonus as these images and works were not at the exhibit. I was excited to see these pieces.

As for the book itself it is hardback and full color. The images of her work are bright and printed large enough to see. If I had one criticism of thus book it would be that the author repeated a few images (maybe 5) however I am willing to forgive this as they are shown in context to the text that accompanies them.

Overall this a gorgeous book that provides great insight into an amazing artist. For those who cannot make the exhibit this is the next best thing and in some cases even better. You can come back look at her work as much as you like! Highly Recommended!

HASH(0x9538b678) étoiles sur 5 beautiful images and a great book! 11 juin 2014

I recently visited the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, and after walking through the special exhibit on Mary Blair I completely fell in love with her artwork and design. She is such an important part of Disney history and her influential role within the company in the 1930s makes her an incredible feminist role model. I picked up Magic Color Flair before leaving that day and am really happy with the purchase. The artwork is beautiful and the background into her life is really well developed and informative. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Mary Blair or early Disney artwork. Also, if you are able to get to it before the exhibit ends, it’s definitely worth checking out!

This book contains artwork I have not seen before. It puts her Disney work within the context of her other creative output. The artwork is beautiful.
