Sleeping Beauty (1959)
Storyboard of A Man.
This is a marvelous storyboard drawing of the village of surrounding Princess Aurora’s castle. Storyboards like this help to flesh out a the backgrounds of films and bring the story to life! We believe this drawing to be from the early 1950s and is attributed to Kay Nielsen. The piece measures 8" x 9". The actual border for artwork measures 6' x 8".
There is a clear overlay cel that accompanies piece. There is evidence of a staple hole and multiple pin holes at each corner which can be easily matted out. As pinning up storyboards for evaluation was often part of the creative process, this is fairly common for this type of work. There is a small tear of 0.25" to the lower edge and 1.5" to the left of the lower right corner which can be easily matted out.
