    Baron Munchausen Concept Drawing Signed by Bill Herwig (Walt Disney, c. 1935). Astonishingly rare, presented is a wonderfully detailed concept illustration created for a Walt Disney cartoon never made, themed after the adventures of the German fictional character Baron Munchausen. This magnificent drawing is by the hand of background artist Bill Herwig, and his signature can be seen in the lower right corner of the piece. This rich and unused artwork was possibly created for a Disney-animated segment in the musical comedy film Hollywood Party with Jack Pearl planned to voice Baron Munchausen. Titled "Cheese City on Moon", this illustration is rendered vividly in graphite, ink and watercolor on illustration paper. It is framed under glass with a mat window size of 11" x 8.25" and an overall frame size of 17.5" x 15". The frame is sold as-is. Rare early concept artwork from a cartoon never made! Well preserved in the frame, the piece shows minor handling wear, and the condition is Very Good.
