    Description

    So Dear to My Heart Color Key Background Painting (Walt Disney, 1949). Here is a rare background Color Key painting of the meadow and river from this live action/animated film, which celebrates its 60th birthday in 2019. You can see images of young Jeremiah and Tildy coming up to the water. The art is in gouache on 12 field background board; the painted area measures 5" x 4". Marked on border is "From How Dear to My Heart 48 release." Considering the film came out in January of the following year, the note makes one believe the studio was shooting for 1948. This beautiful study is an early piece of art created for the film. Background painters for So Dear to My Heart included Art Riley, Ralph Hulett, Jimi Trout, Dick Anthony, Brice Mack, and Ray Huffine. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
