    Description

    Fantasia Animation Drawings Group of 4 (Walt Disney, 1940).
    Fantasia was first released as a theatrical roadshow held in thirteen U.S. cities beginning on 11/13/40. Even though the film was a hit with critics it was unable to make a profit due to World War II cutting off distribution to the European market. The film was subsequently reissued multiple times with its original footage and audio being deleted, modified, or restored in each version. Fantasia is the 23rd highest-grossing film of all time in the U.S. when adjusted for inflation. The Pastoral Symphony sequence features a composition by Ludwig van Beethoven also known as Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 in F Major with animation depicting a mythical Greco-Roman world of colorful centaurs, centaurettes, cupids, fauns and other figures from classical mythology. In this lot we have four drawings; two of Melinda, a centaurette and two of Brutus, a centaur, at a gathering for a festival to honor Bacchus, the god of wine. The drawings were rendered in graphite with colored pencil highlights on 16 field 5-peghole animation paper. These drawings are nearly 80 years old and in Very Good condition with slight paper toning due to the age of the pieces. This is a "must have" for any perceptive animation collector!
