An original oil on canvas version of Endre's Pirate portrait once hung at Disney Corporate Headquarters, and in Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride in Orlando Florida there once existed a scene that bore a striking resemblence to the background of this painting. It appeared as though the triple arches leading to the ship was recreated with a good deal of attention to detail. I do not know if that particular scene still exists in the ride, as it has been many years since I was at Disney in Florida. W 32' H 26' Oil on canvas. Signed Ende Szabo.
