    Fantasia Nubian Centaurette Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1940).
    Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony was given a Greek mythological setting for this segment of the film. Cohorts of the wine god, Bacchus, the two Nubian centaurettes are part of his entourage as he makes his grand entrance to the celebration - his first on-screen appearance. The young lady on the left carries a wine jug, and is in charge of keeping the inebriated deity's cup "running over." These graceful women smile knowingly and flirt with Bacchus; it looks as if they're both enjoying seeing the god make a drunken fool of himself. Famed Disney artist Fred Moore supplied the designs for many of the centaurs and centaurettes. The image area on this beautiful drawing measures 7.5" x 6.5." The lovely centaurette bends down to fill Bacchus' goblet from her wine jug. The Disney artists had perfected the art of effects animation in Pinocchio, released earlier that year; the splashing wine droplets from the handmaiden's jug are drawn masterfully. She is drawn in graphite and colored pencil on 16 field 5-peghole animation paper. The drawing has some slight toning, as well as some minor creasing and handling. In Good condition.
