    Description

    Pinocchio Stromboli and Pinocchio Pre-Production Drawing by Jack Larsen (Walt Disney, 1939). Wonderfully expressive, highly detailed, tight sketch of evil puppet master Stromboli and little Pinocchio, the puppet that wanted to be a human boy. This pre-production 12-field Size Comparison piece was drawn by Jack Larsen, and is noted W.D.P. '39 with Larsen's initials. Mr Larsen was an assistant to Art Babbitt. He worked on the Evil Queen in the Disney's first feature-length film, 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but left along with Babbitt and others during the 1941 animators strike. Pinocchio is just under 4" while Stromboli is a menacing 6.5". Fine condition. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity from Optimum Art.
