    "The Art of Fred Moore" Children Illustration Original Art (Walt Disney, c. 1930s-40s). Fred Moore (1911 - 1952) walked onto the Disney lot at age 18, in 1930. He was thought to have some of the most natural talent of any artist who ever worked at Walt Disney Studios. He was inducted as a Disney Legend; in the online poll of 50 Most Influential Animators, he came in at #4 of all time. His work is covered in the Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston book Disney Animation - The Illusion of Life. His work is looked at in great detail on pages 119 - 129, including his famous "Fred's 14 Points of Animation." His "Freddie's Girls" and "Freddie's Kids" sketches were in high demand by all his coworkers. These drawings rarely seem to come to market these days. This is an outstanding graphite, ink, and gouache Fred Moore original. It showcases two "Freddie's Kids" putting their shoes on and getting dressed. This one-of-a-kind original artwork is also hand-signed and inscribed ("To Fern - Fred Moore"). Many of his girls and kids drawings are unsigned. The kids are nice full-figure images measuring 6" and 8". This is quite simply a stunning piece of art! Matted with an opening of 11" x 9", and in an old glass-front frame measuring 15" x 12". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork has some minor stains and light toning. In Good condition.
