DescriptionBeauty and the Beast Original Children's Book Art (Walt Disney, c.1990s).
The 1991 film, Beauty and the Beast was a significant commercial and critical success for the Walt Disney Company. The film led to three direct-to-video follow-up films, a live-action spin-off television series, a Disney World stage show, a Disney World restaurant, several video games, merchandise, a series of children's books, and the 10th longest-running musical in Broadway history, which was nominated for nine Tony Awards. In March 2017, Disney released a live-action adaptation of the film. The artwork in this lot is from one of Disney's children's books. The piece was rendered in graphite on 16 field animation paper by Paul Wenzel. Paul began at Disney in 1958, working for the studio for 42 years, creating thousands of illustrations for movies and consumer products. This is a fantastic illustration by Paul Wenzel, featuring Lumière, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts and Chip. The image area measures 12" x 8". Fine condition.
