Mickey and the Beanstalk (1947)
What an amazing perspective this drawing gives! You almost have to crane you neck up with Mickey, Donald and Goofy to see the top of the Giant’s table.
As visible in the image, there is some color change to the paper and there is a vertical fold down the center of the piece. There is evidence of pin holes at the upper corners. As pinning up work for evaluation was often part of the creative process, this is fairly common for this type of work. There is a tear 2" in length which has been taped from behind and a 0.125" x 0.25” area of paper loss at the upper edge and 5.75" to the left of the upper right corner. There is a small tear of 0.5" in length and 1" to the right of the lower left corner and a 0.75" x 0.5" area of discoloration 0.5" to the right of the lower left corner. Piece exhibits handling in the lower corners and lower and upper edges. On the back of the drawing and next to the far left peg hole is a dark 0.25" x 0.25" area of hardened residue.
