Last winter I wrote about Disneyland and featured the national park lodge style Grand Californian Hotel.
Besides the decor, I included some photos of paintings that I assumed were done by Disney artists to enhance the early 20th century atmosphere of the place. This is one of the photos:
It turns out that the painting actually is a copy of this:
You can tell it's a (nicely done) copy because the patterns on the wall and Kimono don't exactly match and, more important, the copy doesn't have the artist's signature in the upper right hand corner.
Too bad the Disney folks didn't credit the source using a plaque or other device.
On the other hand, the Disney version is slightly stronger and less impressionistic. To me, this makes it a better painting than the original. (I know this was probably heretical to mention, but I can't help myself.)
