    The Art Nouveau Style is SO beautiful, and - as you've highlighted perfectly, works so well with pin designs.

    Happy Trading!

    All these pins are so rad! I never even knew about them. I thought you were just speaking about Disney art. I own a Kinkade AP myself, and my family collects Disney art!

    Glad I could help. ;D

    That's so amazing! And yes, Disney art is pretty amazing. (Other art is too, but I guess it's just that Disney magic that makes their art so special!)

    I don't think we've talked about their newest "art" :lol:

    Reading through this thread I noted one posted example of Thomas Gainsborough's Blue Boy, the Figment pin, but there were two others also made!

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Also, fun fact (but sadly now an extinct relic of times passed), there was a painting of Donald Duck as the Blue Boy hanging in Minnie's house in Mickey's Toontown Fair in Orlando. It apparently won first prize.

    I can't seem to find any other classical pieces to contribute to this thread, (I'm sure Tiny Tink will find more. Cuz she's pretty awesome.) However, in my searching I found that there are actually a few pins/series that primarily feature Disney's concept art!

    For example,

    There is a Disney Villains concept art side-by-side pin series

    PP 25085, 25086, 25087

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And JDM (Japan Disney Mall) even came out with an "Art of Disney" series!

    Here's the AIW one (PP 49237) and a Lady one (PP 52632) because OH GOSH ITS ADORABLE

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    There are even some pins with concept art for rides!

    PP 48039 WDI - TDS - Tower Of Terror - Concept Art

    Yes, Love the poster art pins!!!


    And, I very sadly say.....Uncle, Uncle, Uncle - PurpleMandms, I'm now out of ideas....for now. Maybe others will find some hidden treasures and/or there will be some new releases.

    In the meantime, this has been my favorite thread to read, learn from, enjoy and contribute to of all time. So, as my swan song for fellow Art Lovers.....An homage to the painting that started it all, Mona Lisa (Yes, some of these were covered this earlier, however, now we'll close the loop)

    [​IMG]

    And a little overview of why this painting marked such a revolution in the art world...from that fountain of information - Wikipedia ;-)
    The Mona Lisa (Monna Lisa or La Gioconda in Italian; La Joconde in French) is a half-length portrait of a woman by the Italianartist Leonardo da Vinci, which has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world".[SUP][1][/SUP]
    The ambiguity of the subject's expression, which is frequently described as enigmatic,[SUP][3][/SUP] the monumentality of the composition, the subtle modeling of forms and the atmospheric illusionism were novel qualities that have contributed to the continuing fascination and study of the work.[SUP][4][/SUP]

    And the Disney Redeux

    As highlighted by Abbysinian28
    [​IMG]

    And GwenWyvery
    [​IMG]

    And we can add - PP 25894 from the Masterpiece Collection (was this covered?)

    [​IMG]

    and some lesser known pins...

    PP 31769 Stitch Painting his version
    [​IMG]

    And, of course Mickey painting his love Minnie
    PP 41252

    Thanks Again !!!

    ^ well, that reminds me - there certainly are plenty of pins featuring characters *creating* art. :)

    Since my area of expertise is Wonderland, I'll share a few here - but most of these come from series with other characters also making art!

    Shall we begin by painting some Easter eggs?

    Too frivolous? Okay, let's make some "real" art! First we need the paint:

    [​IMG]
    Pin 61547: DisneyShopping.com - Cheshire Cat Painting Series Pin



    Ah, but perhaps a true artist prefers sculpting?

    [​IMG]
    Pin 67816: DisneyShopping.com - 4-Pc. World of Disney Art Box Mystery Pin Set (Cheshire Cat only)



    No no argues the Hatter! It is only on canvas that true art is created!

    [​IMG]
    Pin 75215: DisneyStore.com - Art Studio Series - Mad Hatter and Dormouse (Error)


    But for the Queen of Hearts the only thing that will do will be to paint the roses red!

    And even the dwarves like to join in on that fun!

    I love this thread! Is the Mona Lisa the most used painting in Disney pins?

    The Wonderland Artists are fun!

    If it's art, it's welcome here!

    I realized this thread was missing one of the Norman Rockwell inspired designs.

    [​IMG]

    and the pin

    [​IMG]

    The 4 designs (Barbershop Quartet, Self Portrait, Puppy Love and Family Dinner) were also reinterpreted as Disney Cross-Stitch Kits. Three of the 4 are the same image as the pins, but the Family Dinner used a different image from the Lilo & Stitch version.

    The Walt Disney Family Museum here in San Francisco had an exhibit about Mary Blair in 2014 and sold some pins of her art and concept art that are really lovely. I came away with the Alice in Wonderland pin in the series. There are also 2 pieces of Peter Pan concept art like my Alice pin, 1 piece of It's A Small World concept art, and a number of pieces of art from her other projects. Finally, there's a pin that's just a framed portrait of the artist herself. :)

    My photo of the Alice pin in the series.

    Other pins in the set (found from eBay and web searches since I unfortunately don't own them all myself);

    This thread is great! Ever since stumbling onto some of the nouveau pins (The nouveau Blue Fairy is my favorite of the lot <3) I've been curious about how many others are out there!

    Thanks so much for the info and pictures!

    I'm glad I could share those with everyone here! They're a bit under the radar as exclusives to the SF museum. :)

    I've seen some of the pins from the museum and they are really nice! I'm glad SF people have something that only they have access to. Hope to visit that museum someday!
