WALT DISNEY STUDIO
original production animation drawing
pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 3.75" x 3"
This original rough animation drawing of Hyacinth Hippo was created by a Disney animator in development of a scene in the Dance of the Hours segment of Walt Disney's landmark animated feature. The drawing is by Preston Blair who, with lead animator Norm Ferguson, animated Hyacinth in this scene in which the lead ballerina goes into her solo dance on the lawn outside the palace of the Duke Alvise. Mr. Blair wrote the designation "80" at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene.
