    Exclamation The Red Head painting in POTC

    Alright folks, I need to find all the information I can for some research I am doing about the red head painting in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland... anyone know the real title of it and who was the actual painter? I used to have his name, but misplaced it.

    Also I am trying to find prints of it. I know they don't make it, but maybe unofficially someone does.

    Curious,
    the sanguine poppet

    Re: The Red Head painting in POTC

    Do you mean this painting?



    That's original art by one of the imagineers, Marc Davis. As tellnotales.com uh, "tells it":

    "Adorning the Disneyland "Crew's Quarters" is an original work by Marc Davis... and in fact, Davis' original painting has hung inside the attraction for years. It pictures a lusty redhead wielding a pirate's blade, drinking nectar supplied by a cherub with a devilish grin. This may be an instance of clever foreshadowing.

    Some have suggested the painting represents the redhead we will meet later in the attraction after her abduction by the pirates... but who knows?"

    In the attraction, the pirates say "We want the redhead"

    In the portrait, you can bet the seagulls are saying "Mine, Mine, Mine"

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

    Alice Davis might be able to confirm whether they are the same redhead.

    Oh, those naughty Imagineers!

    Here's another famous naughty one by Disney Legend Herb Ryman, titled "New Orleans Square Candy Shop."



    In addition to Herbie's trademark nuns that he loved to populate his NOS art with...on this one he deliberately slipped a trio of "working girls" out on the balcony of Club 33, as seen in the upper right of this painting. His fellow Imagineers seeing this, would rib him asking, "Just what kind of Club do you think that's going to be?!" Some fellow Imagineer admirers of Herbie's unofficially re-named this piece: "Candy Is Dandy, But Sex Won't Rot Your Teeth."

    One has to keep in mind that much of this inspirational and/or concept art was never really intended to be publicly displayed and was mainly for internal use only. But much of it did get used and subsequently displayed many decades later.

    Also in this painting in the bottom right, you'll see a beret-wearing gentleman artist with a sketchpad. That's Disney Imagineer Colin Campbell (who coincidently was the one that painted the harpsichord lid up in Club 33) appearing just as he did in almost every Herbie piece of art about New Orleans Square...as an "inside joke." Apparently Colin had gone off to France to get some formal hotsy-totsy art training or something...and when he returned Herbie thought he was being a bit too boastful about all he learned. So Herbie put him in almost all of his NOS paintings as a poor street artist often selling his "works" for 5 cents apiece, as a good natured little poking of fun at Colin. Look closely at all Herb's NOS works and you'll spot Colin as an artist in a beret!

    Many of Herb Ryman's original signed drawings, watercolors, and paintings...were sold to the public when the Disney Gallery first opened. Including this famous and beautiful Candy Shop one. First in line on Opening Day of the Disney Gallery was former Imagineer and then owner of Landmark Entertainment...Gary Goddard...a huge Herb Ryman fan. When the doors opened he rushed in and purchased many of the multi-thousand dollar Herbie originals being offered for sale...and this one was the first one he headed to grab.

    Given a better place in line that day...that baby would be hanging in my den right now.



    (At one point this naughty Herbie was part of the Art-On-Demand system. Don't know if it still is though. They also had postcards of it when the Disney Gallery first opened.)

    Collin Campbell is also the person who did all the artwork in the Haunted Mansion record with Ron Howard!
