    Fred Moore - "Freddie's Girls" Art Group of 4 (Walt Disney, 1940's). From the collection of a longtime Disney Studios Ink and Paint Department employee come these two inker's tests with tracings of Fred Moore girls. A major section of the landmark book on Disney animation titled The Illusion of Life by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston was devoted to 1996 Disney Legend Inductee Fred Moore (1911 - 1952) and his "Freddie's Girls." His girl drawings were routinely made into model sheets and used for inking tests. This is a series of two graphite drawings, and two cels that were inked over them, making this lot a total of four Fred Moore girls measuring approximately 8" tall. Some paint was applied to the inker's tests, but has flaked off over time. The inker test of the redhead has been affixed to its drawing with clear tape. All show minor handling wear, aging edge wear and paint loss; otherwise, condition is Good. From the Ray Patterson Archives.
