"Fantasia" (1940;1990) [Series] - 50th Anniv. Limited Edition

A series of postings of Fantasia items in the Cowan Collection...

There are always some nice pieces that you run across that are just fun to have. Case in point, this graphite and colored pencil Limited Edition celebrating the 50th anniversary of Fantasia.

While the bulk of the items we pick up are pencils and cels, we tend to pick up other pieces as well. The nice thing about some of these items is that they hold up well to placement anywhere in our low-humidity house in Colorado. Good color. Good action. Just a great little piece. There are a few comments in the "NOTES" below that you might find interesting...

Pegasus and Unicorn Limited Edition (click to enlarge)

----- DATABASE NOTES -----

From "Fantasia" (1940; 1990), the Pastoral Symphony sequence. Came as a gift from Animation USA. A graphite and colored pencil "308/500" "Pegasus and Unicorn from Symphony No. 6 (Pastoral), Ludwig van Beethoven" Appears to be a pastel concept of the figures. The characters were initially to dance/move to a different piece of music -- Cydalise. The unicorn stayed much the same in the final rendition. However, Pegasus was changed to be more stately and graceful. Print embossed with "Fantasia 50 Years Limited Edition" in lower right (1990 release). Similar images can be seen in the Fantasia book, pg. 144. [Item: 20"W x 16"H] Acquired 1998. SeqID-0397

    Take care
