    Fantasia "Night on Bald Mountain" Concept Art (Walt Disney, 1940). "Under his spell, they dance furiously until the coming of dawn and the sounds of church bells send the infernal army slinking back into their abodes of darkness." Deems Taylor prepares us for the terrifying sequence to come. The revelrous demons of Fantasia's "Night on Bald Mountain" are featured here in this fantastic concept drawing. Created very early in the development of the sequence, the great Chernabog takes on a bat-like form, and the debaucherous minions are less ghostly than the ones seen in the film. Incredibly rare, this work of concept art is rendered in graphite and color pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. The image area is 6" x 4.5". The paper shows minor handling and edge wear with tearing on the right edge and a long horizontal fold above the pegholes. There are pinholes in the corners with some minor smudging and folding in places. A hand-written note is near the bottom of the piece, and the condition overall is Good.
