    Description

    Bambi Concept Painting by Art Riley (Walt Disney, 1942). This original concept painting of deer and other woodland creatures in a snowy forest setting is the work of longtime Disney background artist and imagineer Art Riley (1911 - 1998). For nearly thirty years, Mr. Riley produced watercolor backgrounds for Bambi, Pinocchio, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and other classic Disney productions. When Disneyland was created in the 1950s, he painted watercolor illustrations depicting what the park would look like. After leaving Disney, he went on to become a fine artist in his own right, known for his scenic watercolors. This painting by Mr. Riley may have been created for Bambi in the early conceptual stages of the production, or possibly for a greeting card or simply as fine art. It's painted in gouache and signed by the artist. The incredible skill displayed in this painting shows the caliber of artist working at Disney studios in the Golden Age of Animation. The piece is framed with a mat opening of 11" x 15", in a frame measuring 22" x 26". Condition is Fine.
