    Description

    "First Butterfly" Bambi Limited Edition Lithograph #88/500 (Walt Disney, 1990). Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, both Disney Legend Inductees as well as members of "Walt's Nine Old Men", wrote a book entitled "Walt Disney's Bambi - The Story and the Film". To promote this book, they did a global tour of art galleries, lecture halls, and Disney Theme Parks. They also created high grade special Fine Art Bambi lithograph pieces that were sold on this tour. These Fine Art hand-signed lithographs, all based around the film Bambi, were created from original artwork from both Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. The editions sold out very quickly. They released five suites, each suite had two pieces. Each Suite had a Frank Thomas signed piece, and an Ollie Johnston signed piece. This lot is a Frank Thomas piece entitled First Butterfly. It is part of Suite 5, #88 of 500, and it is hand-signed by Mr. Frank Thomas (1912 - 2004). This stunning piece is in a frame of 20" x 17" with a mat opening of 12" x 10". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork is in Very Good condition.
