Queequeg Pursuing Moby Dick, 1956
There have been some exceptional art shows in Los Angeles this year, and another just opened this week: "The Fine Art of Marc Davis" at Glendale's Forest Lawn Museum.
From the creative mind that conjured Tinker Bell and Maleficent, come these fabulous images in oil, charcoal, acrylics and watercolor.
According to his widow Alice, Marc would come home from the Disney studio in the evening, relax in front of the television, and work on his projects. While watching football, boxing or a rodeo, Marc would sketch nature, harlequins, bullfighters, mythological creatures and abstracts.
Marc's Tree, 1958
The exhibit also contains a few of his beautiful sculptural pieces, including a Roman helmet made of wire, which I am particularly obsessed with. It was just another side of this remarkable talent.
The exhibit runs through July 26, and it's FREE ...and so is parking.
