    Description

    "The Art of Elmer Plummer" Original Watercolor Painting (Walt Disney, 1938). Elmer Plummer (1910 - 1986) did extensive Art Direction/Character Design on Fantasia, Dumbo, Song of the South, Victory Through Airpower, and Make Mine Music. He was involved with Disney in some capacity until the day he died. In his youth he was awarded a three year scholarship to Chouinard Art Institute, which later became California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in Los Angeles. He studied under Willard Sheets. Elmer became an important member of the California Watercolor Society. His works were displayed in many art shows and museums where he won countless awards. However, after World War II he only occasionally painted and rarely ever exhibited his work. He was an important artist in the California Watercolor Movement during the 1930s. This is an exceptional Elmer Plummer original water color painting titled "Winter Morning." The piece was showcased at the 18th Annual California Water Color Society Exhibition in 1939 at the Los Angeles Museum at Exposition Park. He had it priced at $100! This stunning watercolor painting is hand-signed and dated '38. In the unpainted area he has handwritten the title of the piece. His 1938 California Water Color Society Exhibition tag for this painting is in an envelope on back of the frame. The frame measures 32" x 25" with Plexiglas, and a mat opening of 20" x 13". Stunning piece of artwork! Frame is sold as-is; artwork is in Very Good condition. From the Elmer Plummer Archives.
