    Fantasia "Pastoral Symphony" Character Design Concept Art by Sylvia Holland (Walt Disney, 1940). Sylvia Holland (1900 - 1974) was one of the first female artists to work at Walt Disney Studios. She was most influential in the making of Fantasia. She worked on concept studies, character designs, backgrounds, and color studies. She had a major influence on the "Waltz of the Flowers" section. This is a trio of rare original character studies for the "Pastoral Symphony" section by Ms. Holland. All three are in one common mat. Each one is stamped on the reverse 9/19/39. The sketches are numbered 1169, 1192, and 1184. These were all originally part of the John Basmajian Animation Art collection brought to market in the 1980s, which helped spur on animation as an art form. Great character studies painted in gouache on trimmed paper, with image sizes of 4", 5" and 6". All are in one common glass-front frame measuring 21" x 17". Very Good condition.
