    101 Dalmatians Re-Release Poster Illustration by Paul Wenzel (Walt Disney, 1979). "The Canine Caper of the Century" read the top of the one sheet poster for this 1979 re-issue of the 1961 animated 100 Dalmatians movie. The top of the poster showcased Cruella De Vil in her car, and the bottom, this stunning portrait of Pongo and Perdita with all those wonderful puppies. This is the original finished artwork used on the poster, from the hand of Mr. Paul Wenzel. He was the leading artist for Disney poster artwork, logging in over 100 of them. He began at Disney in 1958 and worked there for 42 years. Artwork for one sheet theatrical posters is considered extremely rare. The art is in ink and gouache/watercolor on two pieces of conjoined board measuring 24.5" x 18.5". Pongo and Perdita are 10" and 9" tall; overall image area is approximately 20" x 14". Signed by Mr. Wenzel in the lower right. A Disney 1979 copyright notice is pasted below the signature. A stunning piece, considered extremely rare. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
