    Description

    Fred Moore Freddy's Girl Drawing (Walt Disney, late 1930s-early 1940s). Fred Moore (1911-1952) was thought to be one of the most talented and influential animators of his day. While known for his work on Mickey Mouse, The Three Little Pigs, The Centaurettes in Fantasia and the girls in Casey Bats Again to name a few, he was also known for his "Freddie's Girls." Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas featured a section about them in their landmark book Disney Animation: The Illusion of Life. Modern day statues of them have been recent sell-outs in the collector market. Fred's girl drawings were so admired, they were made into model sheets to help train the animators at Disney. This is a rare Inker's Test on nitrate cel of one of Fred's Girls. The distinctive pedestal is also part of Fred's work. Fred's original drawing has been hand-inked onto a cel in amazing detail by someone in the Disney Ink and Paint Department. Slight rip in cel away from image. Rippling due to nitrate cel material. Framed to an overall 18.5" x 22" with a mat opening of 14" x 10". The image is a nice 10" tall. In Very Good condition.
