    Melody Time "Bumble Boogie" Color Key Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1948). Dick Kelsey (1905 - 1987) was a longtime Art Director and Theme Park Imagineer for Walt Disney Studios. He worked on Color and Styling on this film along with Mary Blair and John Hench. This is a great color key concept painting of the bee from the "Bumble Boogie" section of this animated compilation feature film. The Bee is the sole character in this segment. Gouache on paper measuring 2.5" x 3.5" mounted to board. Very rarely-seen character in animation art! Minor handling wear. Very Good condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
