DescriptionCinderella Animation Drawings Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1950).
Cinderella is a daughter of a widowed aristocrat who gave her every luxury and comfort. Her father, believing she needed a mother's love, married Lady Tremaine, who has two daughters about her age. However, after her father's death, Lady Tremaine reveals herself to be a passive-aggressive tyrant who is jealous of Cinderella's beauty. She and her daughters abuse and mistreat Cinderella, ultimately forcing her to become a scullery maid in her own home. The three animation drawings in this lot were from a scene supervised by Eric Larson, one of "Walt's Nine Old Men." The three drawings are noted in the bottom right corner as 149, 155, and 185. The piece numbered 185 has a blue pencil sketch showing the arc of Cinderella's hand. This arc was sketched by Eric Larson as he shows the animator the movement of her hand. These drawings were rendered in graphite with blue pencil on 16 field, 3-peghole animation paper. Cinderella measures 8" tall in each drawing. These are superb vintage drawings and would be a fantastic acquisition by any astute collector! Very mild handling and age-related toning. Artwork is in Very Good condition.
