    Description

    Sleeping Beauty Prince Phillip Early Storyboard/Concept Sketch by Kay Nielsen Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1952-53). This is a rare series of three storyboard/concept sketches that showcase Prince Phillip and his "Shield of Virtue" and "Sword of Truth," from the film's finale battle against Maleficent. John Hench is credited with coming up with this film's first initial styling. He observed famed unicorn tapestries at the Cloisters located at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC. He brought back reproductions and showed them to Walt Disney, who approved this style. Kay Nielsen (1886 - 1957), the Danish illustrator who had worked at Disney from 1937-1941, was the first person to produce styling sketches/concept art like this for Sleeping Beauty. Amazing graphite and Conte crayon detailed artwork on panels of 4" x 5", matted in one common mat measuring 20" x 8". Museum quality. Fine condition.
