WALT DISNEY ORIGINAL, SIGNED ART! Belonged to Disney's sister, Ruth Disney. c1921 Pre-Mickey Mouse Walt Disney pen and ink "Fill Up My Can" drawing by Walt Disney himself with authentic Disney signature, before Disney fame. Disney drawing measures; 8" X 4 3/4" and is attached to a blue page with a heading titled "Miscellaneous" from "The Girl Graduate's Record Book" that belonged to Ruth Disney Beecher, Walt Disney's sister. The reverse side of this page has a non Disney work of art and a poem by another artist that is signed "Ipkigenia Gilhouse" with the date "21". Over the past several years we have had consigned to us some famous archives such as the Gillespie, Murphys and Sharon. This Disney archive was purchased in 1971 by our consignor and is new to the market place. CNBC has recently produced and aired on television the one hour documentary titled "Walt Disney the Man and the Myth". Walter Elias Disney was born in 1901, and had been with the Kansas City Film Ad in 1921 for nearly a year. Disney's business card read, "Walt Disney Cartoonist Comic Cartoons, Advertising Cartoon, Animated Motion Picture Cartoons". This pre Laugh-O-Gram Studio cartoon of Disney's is in excellent condition. After 1925 Walt Disney rarely put a pen or pencil to paper. Then as the head of a thriving movie studio, Disney could leave the draftsmanship to others. Original Disney artwork is rarely offered at public auction. This also carries Walt Disney's signature. DISNEY ARTWORK AUTHENTIC with provenance.
