Description

    Fantasia "Toccata and Fugue" Color Storyboard Group of 12 (Walt Disney, 1940). Walt Disney's artists visualize music for the first scene of Fantasia. The film opens with the Toccata and Fugue in D Minor section, with music written for the organ by Johann Sebastian Bach between 1703 - 1717. It has been said that Walt Disney wanted the opening section to create the sort of impression you might get were you attending a symphony concert with your eyes half-closed. This is a series of twelve hand-painted original storyboards created for this segment, which was directed by Samuel Armstrong with story development by Lee Blair, Elmer Plummer and Phil Dike. Backgrounds were done by Joe Stahley, John Hench, and Nino Carbe. There are no characters shown in these abstract images, but you do see glimpses of the violin players. The key to this section was the dramatic color change; we see a dazzling array of color in these pieces. This magnificent collection of concept art is in one common frame. Each piece is matted out to 7" x 5". This is the most impressive collection we have seen from this opening film sequence! Framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 32.5" x 34". Fine condition.
