DescriptionThe Jungle Book Original Artwork by Al White (Buena Vista, 1967). Very Fine+. Original Mixed Media Poster Artwork on Illustration Board (24" X 20") used on Insert, Three Sheet, Title Card, and Included Half Sheet (22" X 28").
This fantastic ink and gouache illustration from Walt Disney's 1967 jungle adventure comes from the brush of Al White, whose artwork can be found in several Disney children's books and in the backgrounds of the Penguin Random House Little Golden Book series. His image of Rudyard Kipling's famous characters was emblazoned on a number of poster formats for the film's original release, including the insert, three sheet, title card, as well as the half sheet that is also offered in this lot. The original artwork comes with a protective acetate covering attached with masking tape at the top and also has two small pieces of masking tape in the lower corners. Signs of handling include very light edge wear, as well as small scuffs on the acetate cover. There is a 1967 Walt Disney Productions copyright sticker in the lower right corner as part of the creation process. The half sheet, which does not affect the grade, shows mild edge wear, creases, smudges, and moderate tears. Very Fine+.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
