    Pinocchio Model Sheet (Walt Disney, 1940). Joe Grant's work at the Disney Studio, to start a character model department, is legendary. The amount of animation reference materials that went into each and every Disney feature film is simply staggering. One of the most important pieces of Pinocchio history is represented here in this lot. This is the original animators model sheet for the early look of Pinocchio. Comprised of cut out images that were rubber-cemented to light board, and then photographed and printed on photographic paper, and distributed to all who were working on the film, for reference. Noted "Revised Model Sheet", it has 11 original graphite, and pen and ink images that are individually mounted to the board. The board has a hand-inked "Pinocchio", a Walt Disney Prod. copyright, and "F-3" in the top border. Each image is 6" to 7" and the overall board they are mounted on is approximately. 22" x 16". Minor handling and edge wear, with a tape mark on the title. Some images have the glue coming loose, but overall this is a sheer piece of Walt Disney Studio history. Very Good condition.
