    Bambi Bambi and Mother Concept/Color Key Painting (Walt Disney, 1942). Here is an absolutely stunning piece of original concept art created for the 1942 Disney animated classic Bambi. Rendered in gouache on 5.25" x 3.75" illustration board, this monochromatic and ethereal painting evokes a calming mood that can be felt in the early scenes of the film. With a focus on soft shapes and atmosphere in which tiny figures occupy a deep, almost surreal landscape, this miniature masterpiece has a big-painting feel, and it is possibly the work of Disney Legend Inductee Tyrus Wong (1910-2016). The painting is mounted to a mat board of 7.75" x 6", and it shows minor handling and edge wear. The condition is Very Good, and the mat is sold as is.
