DescriptionThe Wonderful World of Disney Thumper and Friend Owl Original Magazine Artwork (Walt Disney, c.1970s).
The Wonderful World of Disney magazine was sold at Gulf Oil gas stations in the 1960s and 1970s. The magazine was only 25 cents and was jam-packed with behind-the scenes insight at Disney, comics, interviews, history, nature articles, puzzles, stories based on Disney movies and some amazing artwork. In this lot we have a fantastic painting of Thumper and Friend Owl from Bambi. The artwork was used in The Wonderful World of Disney magazine during the 1970s. Stunningly hand-painted on heavy illustration board by Disney artist, Al White, this brilliant illustration has an image area measuring 20" x 16.5" on illustration board measuring 22.5" x 20". This piece is from the personal collection of Paul Wenzel. Paul is an accomplished artist who spent 42 years at the Walt Disney Company as a designer and illustrator for their Motion Picture Advertising Department. Very Good condition.
