    Elmer Plummer Make Mine Music "After You're Gone" Concept Art Scrapbook (Walt Disney, 1946). Elmer Plummer received Art Supervision title on this Disney animated feature film, along with Mary Blair and John Hench. Pretty nice company! Elmer's pastel concept art pieces done while working at Disney are legendary. Some of Fantasia's most beautiful concept art came from his hand. This lot is something to behold: Elmer Plummer's original concept art/color keys for the Benny Goodman Quartet segment called "After You've Gone." This was some of the most avant-garde animation art ever done by the studio. Here is Elmer's personal scrapbook that houses nine pages of his artwork for this segment. Each page holds three to five trimmed pieces drawn in pastels on black paper. The musical instruments, the dancing figures, and the magical keyboards are all showcased here. This is some of the most spectacular concept artwork we have seen. Nine pages; each page in the scrapbook is 12" x 15". Overall Fine condition. From the Elmer Plummer Archives.
