    Description

    Fantasia Chernabog Animation Drawings Sequence of 3 (Walt Disney, 1940).
    The night demon, Chernabog, reacts to the coming of dawn, in this magnificent group of three drawings from the "Night on Bald Mountain" sequence of Disney's classic, Fantasia. The massive character practically fills the 16 field 5-peghole page measuring 9" x 9". As Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas reported in their 1993 book, The Disney Villain, Chernabog was created by Disney Animator, Vladmir "Bill" Tytla. The winged devil was based on the Black God of Slavonic mythology. Tytla was Ukrainian and based his demon on a creature from Ukrainian mythology -- a mythology based upon the Black Art known as "Chorni-bok." The Fall 1998 issue of The Disney Magazine revealed that actor Bela Lugosi was the live model on which Chernabog was based. This sequence of four Chernabog drawings were rendered in graphite with red and blue pencil highlights and numbered 125, 161, and 201 in the lower right corner. The drawing also bears a studio production stamp in the lower left corner. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
