Description

    Virgil Ross - Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Illustration (Walt Disney, c. 1990s). Legendary animator Virgil Ross takes a rare turn at drawing Mickey and Minnie, in this illustration inspired by the 1935 short, On Ice. While Mr. Ross (1907 - 1996) is best remembered for his long association with Warner Brothers, he did do some freelance work for Disney late in his career; among the feature films he worked on are The Great Mouse Detective, The Little Mermaid, and Oliver and Company, as well as Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Mr. Ross was considered one of the top animators in America, winning the two highest awards in his field, the Motion Picture Screen Cartoonists Golden Award in 1984, and the Winsor McCay Award in 1988. This charming piece was drawn by Mr. Ross on a sheet of 12 filed animation paper, with image sizes of 4". Fine condition. Signed in the lower right.
