Lot Details
A group of eight Walt Disney preliminary animation drawings from “Fantasia”
1940, pencil on paper, all depict the centaurettes from the Pastoral Symphony section of the film, including a rough drawing of a centaurette’s head both frontal and profile with her hair down; another of a centaurette’s torso with a floral garland draped around her neck and her hair pulled back with a flower; two drawings of full-bodied centaurettes; four sequential drawings of a centaurette holding a cornucopia as she throws flower pedals from the scene when the centaurettes and fauns are making wine.

In these set of drawings, all the centaurettes are bare-breasted. In the final version of the film, the bare breast were covered up with floral brassieres in deference to the Hays Committee, who were incensed that Disney would even think of having them with bare breast.
