DescriptionThe Black Cauldron Concept Illustration by Mel Shaw (Walt Disney, 1985). Here's the fabled Black Cauldron itself, bubbling and smoking as dozens of beady red eyes watch from every angle. This is a magnificent piece of concept art from Mel Shaw (1914 - 2012), a Disney Legend Inductee whose career includes work with Orson Welles, Leon Schlesinger and a couple of stints with Disney. He was part of the design team that redesigned Howdy Doody in the 1950s. This fantastic concept piece is in dark pastels on brown paper measuring 10" x 7.5". The art is signed in the lower left. Very Good condition with minor handling wear. From the Joe Hale Collection.
