Mickey Mouse Drawing as the Sorcerer's Apprentice

Mickey Mouse. Disney animator, Ward Kimball, drew Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice in full color. With ink and watercolor pencil, Kimball has sketched a smiling full length Mickey Mouse dressed as the Sorcerer's Apprentice, bucket in hand. The character became the iconic symbol of the Disney film "Fantasia" released in 1940. Mickey measures approximately 5 inches from tip of hat to top of toe and about the same across. The drawing is accomplished on a 9 x 12 inch firm sketch sheet. The artist has inscribed and signed, "To... Ward Kimball." In overall fine condition; slight bend in lower right corner of the board, two mounting remnants on verso.

Kimball was one of the Disney studios Nine Old Men, the group of the Academy Award winning chief animators on Disney's classic films.
