Description

    A Pre-Production Concept Painting by Jack Martin Smith from "The Wizard of Oz." Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1939. Gouache on board, depicting a fantastical image of "Dorothy" and two "Munchkins" in the Land of Oz, rendered in beautiful pastel shades of blue, beige, and pink, signed in the lower right corner "Jack Martin Smith," one of the principal sketch artists who worked on the film during its pre-production phases, creating works like this before the sets were built; piece is still glued within its vintage mat board which is now cracked in a few places due to age (and the remnant glue and tape around the borders can be seen when the mat is lifted up) but the overall artwork is not affected and still looks quite stunning -- instantly recognizable as a scene from this all-time beloved classic! (Please note there is Scotch-tape residue and yellowing on the verso.)
    Matted: 28" x 35"; Artwork Only: 18" x 25"
