Sleeping Beauty (1959)
two (2) matching original production animation drawings
brown, blue and black pencil on two (2) untrimmed animation sheets, image sizes: 7" x 6.75" and 4.75" x 4.75"
These two (2) matching original rough animation drawings of Princess Aurora as Briar Rose and her forest friends as the Mock Prince were created by Disney animators in development of a scene in the animated Technirama feature. Aurora dances with her "prince" and sings "Once Upon a Dream," and the cels made from these drawings appear as she sings "...upon a dream."
Marc Davis and John Lounsbery, two of Walt Disney's master animators known as his Nine Old Men, supervised the animation of Aurora and the animals in this scene. The drawing of Aurora is signed by Marc Davis. The animators wrote the designations "112" and "312" at lower right to indicate each original's place in the scene.
