    Description

    Unknown Artist - Original Cover Art for Micky und Wumba-wu (Disney, 1961). A visit by Mickey Mouse to Africa, the land of his friend, Wumba-Wu, sets the stage for this politically-incorrect cover image. From the German book, Micky und Wumba-wu, this cover illustration, painted in vibrant color, pictures Mickey meeting his friend against a brilliant orange jungle design. We consulted with a Disney expert, and have yet been unable to identify the artist, whose beautiful work graces this art. The artist completely fills this sheet of 9.5" x 10" illustration paper with rich, colorful watercolor, with some additional airbrush work to give it a soft look. A piece of work from an entirely different continent, and an entirely different civil rights perspective. A discriminatory image for the discriminating collector.
