    Ali Baba Concept At/Storyboard Art by Alvaro Arce Group of 10 (Walt Disney, 1988). The great Alvaro Arce worked in the Story Department for the Walt Disney Studios in the late 1980s. He did a series of concept paintings and storyboards for an animated project that was titled "Ali Baba." It is not known for certain, but this may have been preliminary work for Disney's future animated feature film Aladdin. This lot is a series of 10 rare storyboards to the "Ali Baba" animated project as well as a concept art painting of a type of "Cave of Wonders" type scene. All are from the hand of Alvaro Arce. Storyboards are in graphite and marker on mostly 6.5" x 8" sheets, while concept art painting is on light board measuring 15" x 10" with a painted area of 10" x 7". The painting is hand-signed by the artist. Minor handling, edge wear, and pinholes in storyboards corners. Overall condition is Good.
