    Description

    Grasshopper and the Ant Model Sheet (Walt Disney, 1933). This short was Disney's adaptation of the classic Aesop's Fables story and this lot is a very rare model sheet from an early Silly Symphony that's sure to appeal to advanced Disney collectors. This model sheet features 11 different images of the Grasshopper who was voiced by Pinto Colvig (1982 - 1967) who later gave the same voice to Goofy. Printed model sheets like this were used by animators to reference character poses and expressions. They are considered highly collectible as official studio documents from the production of the films. The artwork is printed on 11" x 14" photographic paper and framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 8.5" x 11.5" in a 16" x 19" frame. The piece shows handling; otherwise, condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
