    Description

    Fantasia "Dance of the Hours" Concept Drawing Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1940). The very first character we are introduced to in the delightful "Dance of the Hours" sequence is prima ballerina (and ostrich), Madame Upanova, in a heap of feathers on the floor. Slowly we see movement: A ballet slipper appears, then a head... she awakens and begins to stretch gracefully -- only to lead her troupe in an uproariously clumsy dance number! This is a set of three layout drawings of Madame Upanova's initial appearance at the beginning of the sequence. Drawn beautifully on 12 field 5-peg animation paper, in graphite with detailed use of blue and red highlights. Each drawing is stamped in bottom right corer 10, 11 and 13. Stamp on back reads "'Concert Feature' Seq 10". Sketch numbers 864, 866, and 867. The art is by Disney giant, James Bodrero. Each drawing is dated July 11th, 1939. James Bodrero was a main character designer for the "Dance of the Hours" segment. Rare opening sequence layout/concept artwork. Matted with each mat opening measuring approximately 11" x 8". Minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
