DescriptionFantasia "The Pastoral Symphony" Sunflower Animation Cel (Walt Disney, 1940).
Fantasia was first released as a theatrical roadshow held on thirteen U.S. cities from 11/13/40. The film was subsequently reissued multiple times with its original footage and audio being deleted, modified, or restored in each version. When Fantasia was re-released on 12/17/69, during the time of the famous "Psychedelic Poster" four racial stereotype scenes were removed. This is an extremely rare animation drawing of Sunflower. She was originally seen polishing the hooves of a white centaurette in this scene from the "Pastoral Symphony" segment. This remains one of the hardest characters to find from this landmark film. Great full figure image of 5.5". The piece was hand-drawn in graphite with red pencil on 16 field, 5-peghole animation paper. Screen grab copy included. Mild age-related toning, superficial wrinkling in the center bottom and top left, and normal edge wear. Otherwise, Very Good condition.
