Description

    Toy Tinkers Preliminary Background Painting (Walt Disney, 1949). All aboard, train lovers! Here's a beautiful preliminary background color key painting of a toy train track, from the short directed by Jack Hanna starring Donald Duck with Chip and Dale. The finished art can be seen at the 3:39 mark, where Donald is at the switch by the track and wrapped presents. This Christmas-themed short was released on 12/16/49, and received an Academy Award nomination. This lovely little scene was painted by Thelma Witmer (1911 - 1996), who painted most of the backgrounds for this short. The art is matted with an opening of 5.5" x 4", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 11" x 9.5". Fine condition.
