    Description

    Song of the South "Tar Baby" Sequence Concept Art by Ken Anderson (Walt Disney, 1946). This is perhaps the most museum-worthy lot in the auction. This is Ken Anderson's personal book of thumbnail sketches for the "Tar Baby" sequence in Song of the South. The book houses 23 pages of original one-of-a-kind pen-and-ink thumbnails with dialogue, drawn from the hand of Mr. Anderson. The art is housed in a binder with a typed title page "THUMBNAILS Seq. 02.0 Prod. 2029 (Original) Property of Walt Disney Productions." Inked on first page is "Tar Baby Thumbnail Sequence 02.0 Section No. 3," initialed KEA. The book includes twenty-three 12.5" x 10" pages with three-ring binder holes on the left margin. Most have six thumbnail drawings per page. A small handful are missing; some have correction art pasted over the original. Ken Anderson (1909 - 1993) was a jack-of-all-trades for Walt Disney. He worked in animation, theme park development, art direction, story development, and more. He was a Disney Legend Inductee in 1991. Ken served as a Cartoon Sequence Director on this film. The historic 23 pages of drawings comes with a mimeograph set of 24 lead sheets, with names of which animator is animating what sequence. It's fascinating to see the names of Johnston, Kahl, Larson and Davis on these everywhere! Approximately 127 Ken Anderson original thumbnail sketches with typed dialogue, spread over 23 pages. Incredible! Tape on some, minor handling and edge wear. Overall Very Good condition.
