1967 Vacationland Magazine Cover Painting

One of my favorite pieces. Disney WED designer/illustrator Neil Boyle's concept/publicity art for the creation of New Orleans Square. The painting, which is based on an early Herb Ryman concept view of the Royal Courtyard, dates from at least 1965. Before it was featured on the cover of the Winter/Spring 1967 issue of Vacationalnd, it was in the interior pages of both a 1965 and 1966 issue.

Boyle's work will be familiar to fans of the 1965 Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln LP on Disneyland records.

Very nice to see the original painting! Neil Boyle was nice enough to agree to be my sponsor when I decided to join the Society of Illustrators (he lived in Thousand Oaks like I did)!
