It is attributed to Hank Porter, one of the defining artists in the Disney Studios publicity department during the mid 1930s, and bears a secretarial Disney signature to the lower right which was done by Porter. Accomplished in watercolor on 15.5 x 11.5 art board. In fine condition. It is believed that there are fewer than ten paintings of this type in the world today.
