Pinocchio - Official Disney Studio Ozalid - Pinocchio meets Fox & Cat the First Time - (1940)
Tenggren, Gustaf. - Very good - 1 Print - 36,5 x 27,8 cm

This exceptionally rare official Ozalid Disney Studio Print sheet shows fantastic Atmosphere sketches drawn for Pinocchio by Gustaf Tenggren. These sheets were passed around the studio to ensure artistic consistency throughout the production, and were displayed as shown in the photo.

Tenggren's involvement in Pinocchio was key to the stylising of the film as having come from Europe, he brought a much needed sense of reality to the atmosphere of the old town and buildings, something the American animators could only guess at.

This type of Ozalid print would have been produced in house to ensure secrecy and it is very rare for any to have ever left the Studios.

The Ozalid printing process relies on a sensitised paper being developed using ammonia vapour, resulting in a very stable and long lasting print, often used by architects and early animation studios, as the sheets would have been handled over and over.

The surface of this print has a slight satin finish, similar to that of a developed photograph on satin paper from a dark-room.

The atmosphere sheet is in extremely good condition and was used in the production of the animation 80 years ago.

This is a true piece of Disney Studio history.
