WALT DISNEY STUDIO
original production animation drawing
red, blue, purple, orange and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 9.25" x 14.75"
This superb, large-image final animation drawing of Chernabog was created by a Disney Studio animator in production of Walt Disney's landmark animated feature, and a cel painting was made directly from it. Vladimir Tytla supervised the animation of Chernabog throughout Night on Bald Mountain including this scene; Mr. Tytla undoubtedly worked on this particular drawing, and his mark appears at upper right.
In his 1983 book Walt Disney's Fantasia author John Culhane wrote of Night on Bald Mountain: "The great strength of this segment is that its personification of evil in Vladimir Tytla's animation of Chernabog, the Black God or Satan, was and remains today the highest point yet achieved in the art of animation." The animator wrote the studio designation 33 at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene. Our certificate of authenticity is included.
VERY FINE condition.
