    Description

    "Private Snafu" Background Concept Painting (Warner Brothers, c. 1940s). Original background color key/concept design painting from the hand of Maurice Noble (1911 - 2001). From 1942 to 1945, Maurice Noble worked on Private Snafu shorts under Frank Capra in the propaganda film unit headed by Major Theodore Geisel (aka Doctor Seuss!). Also in this unit were Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, and John Sutherland. Noble would go on to work with these men for the rest of his life. This particular painting is done in gouache on 11" x 8" paper. The artwork is matted with an opening size of 8" x 6" and is hand-signed by Maurice Noble on bottom right. Minor handling. In Very Good condition. From the Maurice Noble Archives.
