While Walt Disney is a household name, at the heart of his finest work were countless unsung artists and animators; one of the most legendary among them was Mary Blair. With a background in watercolour and fine arts, Blair’s use of bold shapes would go on to cement her reputation as one of the most influential artists in the Disney story.
Hearts have long been a symbol of love and, thousands of years ago, it was believed that hearts were the centre of all human emotion. It is believed that the stone shape was pioneered in the mid 1400s. For Mary Queen of Scots, the jewel was a symbol of friendship and goodwill, and in 1562 she sent Queen Elizabeth a heart shaped ring set in gold.
