    "The Art of Jesse Marsh" In-Studio Portrait Illustrations Group of 5 (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Before working as the main Tarzan comic book artist of the late 1940s and '50s, Jesse Marsh began his career in 1939 at the Walt Disney Studio, in the story department. He worked on both Pinocchio and Fantasia. This is a series of portrait art he did on a fellow studio employee named Nora Cochran. Two are detailed graphite on trimmed illustration board, and two are on 16 field 5-peghole animation paper. A fifth piece is on trimmed paper measuring 11" x 9". One of the five is hand-signed by Jesse Marsh. Any and all work he did while at Walt Disney Studios is considered very rare. Major handling wear, edge wear with tear and folds. In Fair overall condition.
