    Description

    The Ugly Duckling Model Sheet Group of 4 (Walt Disney, 1939). The second time was a charm for Disney studios with this Hans Christian Andersen fairytale. After making a black and white cartoon of the Ugly Duckling in 1932, this far superior color version was produced in 1939 and won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject. It would also be the last of the Silly Symphony series. This is a collection of four printed model sheets from that award winning short. Included is a model of the title character, a comparative size model of the blackbird and babies and two identical comparative size models of the duckling and decoy. Printed on photographic paper, they range in size from 12.5" x 10" to 14" x 11". Model sheets like these were used by animators and studio artists to reference character motion, appearance, and scale. They are considered highly collectible as official studio documents from the production of the films. All exhibit light handling, edge wear, creases, and pin holes; otherwise, condition is Good.
