    Walt Peregoy Catfish Bend Concept Art (Walt Disney, 1978). In the late 1970s, Walt Disney Studios greenlighted the adaptation of the "Catfish Bend" tales from the books by Ben Lucien Burman, which contained stories about various swamp animals living along the banks of the Mississippi River. Famed Disney artist Ken Anderson headed up this project. Extensive concept art and story work was completed before the film was ultimately shelved. This lot really shows how serious they were about this film! Here we have an outstanding pan concept piece from the ill-fated project: an elaborate pastel painting from the hand of Disney Legend Inductee, Walt Peregoy (1925 - 2015). The depth of color in this piece of artwork is incredible! Two of the Mississippi characters are center front and both measure 5" tall. The piece is also hand-signed by Mr. Peregoy. Matted with an opening size of 27" x 12". In Fine condition. From the Walt Peregoy Archives.
