Concept piece of Mickey Mouse.
After purloining Yensid’s magic hat Mickey tries out his new powers by trying to enchant a pair of brooms to do his chores. This fantastic concept is early in the production process as noted by the lack of stars on Yensid’s hat.
Artwork measures 9.25" x 12" mounted on 11.75" x 14.5" art board.
The art piece is slightly buckled. There is evidence of multiple pin holes within the white margins of the piece by the corners and halfway across the upper edge which can be easily matted out. As pinning up work for evaluation was often part of the creative process, this is fairly common for this type of work. As visible in the web image, there are small spots of darkened glue residue within the white margins along the left side and at the lower right corner of the piece; this can be easily matted out. There is hardened glue residue which has seeped out and is visible along the edges of the piece with greater seepage at the lower right corner which can be easily matted out. There is marked wear throughout the black art board; creases across the upper left and lower corners with surface paper loss and paper separation, multiple pin holes at the corners and tears of 0.5" halfway across the upper, left and right edges. These can all be easily matted out.
