Layout drawing of Pinocchio and the Coachman.
This is a layout of story book art for Pinocchio portraying the children (including the title marionette character) being lured by the Coachman and his cohorts to a trip to Pleasure Island. Note poor Jiminy on near the base of the coach, doing his darnedest to talk Pinocchio out of the trip!
This piece is actually composed of two drawn fields (sheets of paper) each measuring 6"H by 7.5"W taped onto a larger piece. The piece has notations (such as the stamp that says :This drawing used by promotion dept" and the notes "Drwg #25, Page 41") and measures, in its entirety, 12.5"H by 19"W.
The corners of the large paper exhibit slightly more than normal handling around the edges and need to me matted out. There is tape residue on the corner of each drawing and the drawing on the left has come loose from the larger paper.
