This question just in from Christopher Kerry:

[As a Disney historian maybe you can help me. I have an original Paul Hartly painting that measures aprox 6ft by 16ft. the painting illustrates the design and construstion of the original Disney park and used to hang in the Disney Design studios at 808 W Vermont. I know very little about the work other than what I have just stated but would like to know more. have you ever seen or heard of this painting?]

Any ideas?

It would be nice to see an image of the painting. Paul Hartley probably is the designer who was at the studio - in my mind his most well-known period was the 50's when he art-directed the Mickey Mouse Club Magazine. His picture is in The Art of Animation, here he is reviewing portfolios together with Ken Peterson, Andy Engman and Marc Davis.
