Sleeping Beauty Dye Transfer Signed Walt Disney by Artist Bob Moore


In stock


Walt Disney studio dye transfer print of Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, hand signed with a Walt Disney autograph by Disney Legend and authorized Disney signer Bob Moore. These high quality prints were given away by the studio for publicity and as gifts. Framed and in the original studio mat with blueish grey crayon to match the artwork, boldly signed “To Mary, With Best Wishes – Walt Disney”. Mary was a child with Downs Syndrome and the piece is from her family’s California estate. Circa 1950s to 1960s. Measures about 16”x20” framed with sight-size 9”x12”.

Bob Moore joined Disney as an apprentice in 1940, helped animate Dumbo and other cartoons as well as Navy training films during WWII. Later, he became Disney’s creative director of advertising, designed a Walt Disney postage stamp, and is probably best known as an alternate signer of Walt’s autograph on photos or when we was unavailable to sign artwork. Bob retired in 1983 and was named a “Disney Legend” in 1996.

The piece was authenticated via email by Disney autograph expert Bob Sears, the world’s only autograph dealer specializing in Walt Disney autographed items. In very good condition with light wear to wooden frame and some tearing to dust cover on back.
