    Fantasia "Nutcracker Suite" Animation Drawings Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1940). Lester Novros, the founder of Graphic Films and famed USC Film instructor, began as an inbetweener on Snow White at Walt Disney studios. He then received an art direction credit on Fantasia for his work on the "Night on Bald Mountain" segment. From his personal collection is this pair of two 16 field rough animation drawings from the "Nutcracker Suite" section. These are of the Thistle Boy dancing with the Orchid Girl in the Russian dance segment. Art is done in graphite and blue pencil. Minor handling and edge wear. Good condition overall.
