The Prologue and The Promise
Recognized as a man of many worlds. Robert spent nearly 10 months planning and painting the Horizons mural on a 19’ by 60’ canvas.
The Prologue and The Promise is a mural that was commissioned by Walt Disney’s EPCOT Center in Orlando, Florida for their Horizons pavilion. The mural could be seen as you exited the Horizons pavilion and exhibit. The pavilion is gone but the legacy of this great work of art still remains.
It took almost three months to develop the concept for the mural at his studio in Paradise Valley, Arizona. The second phase, the painting phase, took more than six months to finish and was completed at the Disney Studios in Burbank, California.
The mural was completed in March of 1983 with the help of Robert’s wife Louise McCall.
Robert McCall’s family can be seen in the mural as well. “If you look close enough, you’ll see my daughters, Cathy and Linda, their husbands and my four grandchildren as well as Louise and myself. And, oh yes, you’ll also see Linda’s pet dog.”
