#462 - Forest hand-painted production background from The Old Mill Estimate: $1,500+

Hand-painted background intended for The Old Mill, Disney's innovative 1937 short

(Walt Disney Studios, 1937) Original hand-painted background featuring the grass parted in a forest clearing from The Old Mill, intended for production use but not seen in the final film. Accomplished in watercolor on 10 x 6.75 artist's paper. Matted to an overall size of 16 x 12.5; lifting the mat reveals that the piece is stamp-dated September 8, 1937 along the bottom, and the reverse is marked "Discard" with some editorial sequencing notations. In very good to fine condition, with paper loss to the bottom edge (visible only when lifting the mat).

The Old Mill was a pioneering Silly Symphony cartoon which served as a proving ground for innovative animation techniques—such as a multiplane camera, complex lighting effects, and the rotation of objects—that would be incorporated in the production of Disney's feature-length films, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Fantasia, and Bambi.
