    Description

    A Pre-Production Concept Painting by Jack Martin Smith from "The Wizard of Oz." Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1939. Gouache and pencil on heavy stock paper, depicting a man riding a horse and buggy set against the fantastical background of Emerald City (possibly the "He's the horse of a different color" scene), rendered mostly in shades of teal blue and forest green with small areas of peach and white highlights, signed in the lower right corner "Jack Martin Smith," one of principal artists who worked on the film during its pre-production phases, creating works like this before the sets were built; piece seems to have been backed with the same kind of paper it was created on around the same time it was created, remnant glue and cardboard appear around the borders where there was once a mat board, but the overall image is not affected. (Please note there are pin holes around the margins of the back side.)
    21" x 27"
