    Description

    Fantasia Chernabog Animation Drawing Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1940). "Bald Mountain, according to tradition, is the gathering place of Satan and his followers. Here on Walpurgis Night, which is the equivalent of our own Halloween, the creatures of evil gather to worship their master." Composer Leopold Stokowski sets the stage for the memorable and nightmare-inducing "Night on Bald Mountain" sequence of the Disney animated masterpiece Fantasia. Depicted here is Chernabog in an incredible set of two original animation drawings. Seen at the 1:51:37 mark of the film, one drawing depicts the demon at an impressive 10" x 11.5" on the 16 field 5-peghole animation paper, and the other features the swirling fog surrounding him. This sequence featured remarkable and innovative effects animation that are showcased here in excellent form. The drawings are rendered in graphite with red and blue pencil, and they show minor handling and edge wear with four reinforced pegholes between the two pieces. The sheets are marked 87 and C-87 in the lower right corners, and the condition of this set is Very Good.
