    Fantasia "The Pastoral Symphony" Concept Art by Sylvia Holland (Walt Disney, 1940).
    Sylvia Holland (1900 -1974) was part of a handful of female artists on the Walt Disney staff in 1938. She was heavily involved in the development of Fantasia. She worked on concept studies, character design, story, backgrounds, and color styling. She worked at the studio until the studio layoffs after World War II. Her artwork from Fantasia is highly sought after. This is a Sylvia Holland original concept painting from "The Pastoral Symphony" section of Fantasia. It showcases the Centaurettes bathing with fauns. In the final version of the film, the Centaurettes bath under a waterfall. You can see the inspiration for that scene from this Sylvia Holland original Fantasia concept piece. Gouache on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Painting takes up almost the entire sheet. The piece is hand-signed by Sylvia Holland in the bottom right corner. This stunning original painting is in a frame of 16" x 14". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork has minor handling and edge wear. Overall Very Good condition. From the Forbes Collection.
