    Description

    The Ugly Duckling Model Sheet (Walt Disney, 1939). An earlier Silly Symphony animated short based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale, The Ugly Duckling was originally produced by Disney in black and white in 1931. A far superior color version, produced in 1939, won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject and also happened to be the last of the Silly Symphony series. This printed model sheet is from that award winning short and features images of the entire duck family. There is even a size comparison of the ducklings and the ugly duckling in the lower right corner. Printed on 11" x 14" photographic paper, model sheets like this 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. The piece is framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 10.5" x 13" in a 19" x 22" frame. It exhibits light handling and a fold crease from top to bottom near the center; otherwise, condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
