    Pinocchio Pleasure Island Concept Drawing by Curt Perkins (Walt Disney, 1940). "Right here boys, right here. Get your cake, pie and ice cream. Eat all you can, be a gluten, stuff yourself, it's all free!" yells the carnival-type barker to the boys as they are ushered into Pleasure Island by the Coachman. A small donkey in the lower right corner of the artwork indicates the sad future these boys have in store for them. This is an exceptional 16 field concept drawing of Pleasure Island, drawn in graphite with multi-colored pencils. This is from the hand of background artist and Art Director, Mr. Curt Perkins (1916 - 1996). His signature is on the bottom right border. Amazing detail to this brightly-colored original artwork; the number 3 is written in bottom right border. Framed with Plexiglas, matted with an opening size of 17" x 13", with an overall frame size of 23" x 26". Slight vertical crease through the center; minor handling and edge wear with pinholes in corners. Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
