    Walt Disney Studios - Nude Sketches Original Art (Disney, undated). One of Disney's "nine old men," Fred Moore, had a habit of sketching scantily clad or even nude young women in his spare time. These "Freddie Moore Girls" became highly prized collectibles among the Disney studio staff. The closest that one ever got on film, however, was in either as one of the centaurettes from the "Pastoral Symphony" sequence from "Fantasia" or the girl from the "Make Mine Music" sequence, "All the Cats Join In." The six drawings presented here under the collective title "Disney nudes" were drawn by Disney house artists, and feature young women with one thing in common... they are either completely nude, or in the process of becoming nude. This is a side of Disney's creative staff that is rarely, if ever, seen, and is certain to command some spirited bidding! Drawn in primarily red pencil on original Disney animation bond paper, these 10" x 12" sketches are in Very Good condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "This saucy collection of "this is how we use our spare time" sketches by various Disney artists was just too cool to pass up. Both sexy and innocent, these drawings speak to me of a time in the history of animation that, alas, is no more."
