    Description

    Walt Disney's Uncle Remus Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox Illustrations by Bob Grant Group of 2 (Walt Disney/Simon & Schuster, 1948). When Disney's 1946 live action/animated feature film Song of the South was released, the United States was a far different place. Today's far more sensitive audiences could be offended by some of the live action elements in the film, and use of the type of rural Black patois common for its time. The animated adventures of Br'er Rabbit and friends (the apostrophe is often left out, as it is in this storybook) remained popular long after the film was pulled from distribution. Here's two superb watercolor/gouache on board illustrations from pages 11 and 26 from the hand of Bob Grant (1916 - 1968), who primarily worked on Disney Studio's newspaper comic strips (he did the Scamp daily strip, among others). The first features Brer Fox, which is matted with an opening of 6.5" x 6", and framed with glass for an overall size of 13.25" x 12.75". The second features Brer Rabbit, matted with an opening of 6.5" x 5" and framed with glass for an overall size of 13.25" x 12.25". The frames are sold as-is. Art condition for both is Fine.
