    Flowers and Trees Layout Drawing Original Art (Walt Disney, 1932). Burt Gillett directed this groundbreaking Silly Symphony short. It was released on 9/30/32 and was the first commercially released film to be produced in 3-color strip Technicolor. It won the Academy Award in the first year this award was given for Short Subjects -- Cartoons. Animation on this landmark short was done in part by David Hand Les Clark. This is a very rare 12 field 2-peghole layout drawing of when the male tree is just about to propose to the female tree. He has spotted the caterpillar who has rolled himself into a ring, so he may put in on the lady tree's finger. You can see this image around the 7:05 mark. Art is in graphite, with a 6" image. A screen grab print of this exact scene is included in the lot. Any and all artwork from this short is considered extremely rare. Matted with an opening of 10.5" x 8.5", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 18" x 15". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork condition is Very Good.
