    Bambi Re-Issue Poster Illustration by Paul Wenzel (Walt Disney, 1982). The Walt Disney Studio made a great deal of revenue in the past, re-releasing their classic films on a seven-year cycle. These re-releases always had new artwork for the one sheet theatrical posters. Here is the original published artwork of Bambi, Thumper, and Flower for the 1982 re-release poster, from the hand of Mr. Paul Wenzel. Paul worked for Disney for 42 years, beginning in 1958. He was head of Design and Illustration for the Motion Picture/Advertising Department, providing artwork for over 100 theatrical one sheet posters. Finding the artwork that creates these posters is very rare and difficult. Bambi and Flower are painted on board measuring 20" x 26.5". Thumper's image is on 10" x 9" paper that has been attached to the board by the artist. A Walt Disney Productions thin copyright notice sticker is on the bottom border. Artwork is hand-signed by Mr. Wenzel. Characters are large images painted in gouache/watercolor and ink, with sizes of 6" to 11". Minor handling and surface wear. Very Good condition.
