    Disney In-Studio Gag Paintings and Drawings by Jesse Marsh Group of 19 (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Jesse March's affections while working at the Walt Disney Studios (1939 - 1947) were for a curly blonde woman who wore glasses and asked for some of these drawings to be "Returned To Nora Cochran 3B-16". Here is a group of 19 gouache, graphite and colored pencil, and pastel gag drawings, all about Miss Cochran. One elaborate piece has her as "Whistlers Mother!" All are on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. They showcase her bowling, dancing, reading, with many caricature drawings of her. Great insight in to the Art of Jesse Marsh and the Walt Disney Studio Story Department. A funny inside gag about "Art Babbitt" is on one. Minor handling wear, edge wear and tear, rips, folds, etc. Brittle paper; in Fair overall condition.
