“Entrance to Candyland” (1946) by Herbert D. Ryman

Enjoy an Original Drawing by Herbert D. Ryman in Your Own Home

“Be inordinately infatuated with the world—its people, its history, and geography. Let your eyes speak to your heart and your heart to your hand.” –Herbert D. Ryman

“Entrance to Candyland” (1946)

Herbert D. Ryman (1910–1989) was that rare artist who easily bridged both the commercial and fine arts throughout his long career, with work in one sphere inspiring the other. Ryman created the first overall illustration of Disneyland, drawing as Walt Disney described his dream for a new kind of family entertainment, and continued to work on every Disney theme park until he died in 1989. Ryman was also an exhibiting fine artist, a member (and president) of the California Art Club. He was particularly prolific in pen and ink, watercolor, and oil. His work was shown regularly in galleries as early as 1937 in New York and Los Angeles. Today his work is held in public and private collections across the country.

This drawing depicts final preparations as the Ringling Brothers Circus debuts a new “Candyland” circus act in Chicago.
