    Tom Wood The Band Concert Walt Disney Illustration Original Art (Good Housekeeping, 1935). While Heritage has been privileged to offer about 30 Good Housekeeping sequences over the years, this is one of the earliest (the feature began in April 1934 and this is the tenth one) we've offered, ties in with the most significant cartoon, and is one of the most colorful and fun! This is also Mickey Mouse's first Good Housekeeping appearance.
    This is probably the first piece of finished "Band Concert" art to see print. It was featured in the January 1935 issue of Good Housekeeping (the cartoon short was released in February 1935), and it's been well-documented that Tom Wood based his art on the storyboards of a given cartoon.
    This promotes what would be the first theatrical Mickey Mouse cartoon in color, The Band Concert. Often considered one of the very best Disney cartoons of all time, this delightful tale of Mickey's rag-tag team of musicians gets the full Tom Wood treatment here, with wonderful results. The art is in ink and watercolor, in connected segments that have an approximate image size of 18" x 26", and the art, along with a copy of the text, has been professionally linen-matted and Plexiglas framed to an overall size of 28.25" x 36.5". There is some very minor paper aging to several of the connected segments, leaving the art in Very Good condition. What a perfect item to go along with The Band Concert animation cel, offered elsewhere in this auction! From the Kerby Confer Collection.
