    Mickey Mouse Illustration by Milt Kahl Original Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940-50s). Disney's "Nine Old Men" is a colloquial term for the core animators at Walt Disney Productions who created some of Disney's most famous works, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Rescuers. Walt Disney jokingly called this group of animators his "Nine Old Men." In this lot is a fantastic illustration of Walt's iconic mouse illustrated by Disney Legend Inductee and one of the "Nine Old Men," Milt Kahl (1909 - 1987). Kahl is often considered the finest draftsman of the Disney animators. He would often refine the characters sketches with the ideas of Ken Anderson. For many years the final look for the characters in the Disney films were designed by Milt Kahl. Mickey stands full-figure at 4.5" tall, rendered in color pencil and watercolor on 7" x 8.5" paper. The piece is floated in a frame measuring 11" x 12.5". Frame sold as-is. This is a great opportunity to acquire an original piece from the hand of one of "Walt's Nine Old Men". Age-related paper toning. Condition is Good.
