    Elmer Plummer - Abstract Painting (c. 1930s). "The Art of Elmer Plummer." Elmer Plummer worked on character development for Dumbo, Fantasia, Song of the South, and the Three Caballeros to name a few. He worked on Goofy shorts, worked on theme park design and taught at Cal Arts for Disney. He had a 30-plus year career with Walt Disney studios. What is not commonly known is that he was one of the artists heavily involved in the 1930s California Watercolor painting movement. Here is a rare abstract watercolor painting of a woman sitting in a chair reading a book. It is a brilliant painting by Elmer Plummer on paper measuring 11" x 12". Matted. Minor handling and edge wear; otherwise Fine condition. Very rare! From the Elmer Plummer Archives.
