A Gallery of Amazing Disney Concept Artwork

The animated movies produced by the Walt Disney company in through the 1950s feature some of the most evocative and memorable images of any films from the period, animated or otherwise. A large part of that brilliance is thanks to the work some of the industry’s best artists.

This gallery features two such artists — Mary Blair and Eyvind Earle, whose visual imprint is evident in these paintings. Their work shown here served as concept art for many of Disney’s most beloved motion pictures.

Enjoy!
