    Description

    Detroit Auto Show Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy Illustration Art (Walt Disney, 1938). Original artwork done by the Walt Disney Studios for the 1938 Detroit Auto Show in 1938. This is a magnificent watercolor painting, with Donald Duck and Goofy judging what appears to be Mickey's own homemade car, complete with a 1938 license plate on the front. The artwork looks very similar to early Good Housekeeping artwork, usually done by Hank Porter or Tom Wood. A marvelous image, in its original frame measuring 17" x 19". "Walt Disney" is written on the bottom right (by a studio artist). There is slight discoloration on the "Auto Show" area. The characters are between 5" and 11"! A rare piece of promotional artwork, done in the Studio's heyday! Originally from the personal collection of a General Motors Executive. In Fine condition.
