1940This is a Disney Ozalid Layout Sheet.
The Ozalid Layout 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 the image of Gepetto's House from the Atmosphere Ozalid is reproduced in the Disney Archives book as shown.
This type of Ozalid print would have been produced in house to ensure secrecy and hardly ever left the Studios. These are rarely found even in the hands of collectors.
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 layout sheet is in extremely good condition despite the small tear to the top and left edges, and was actually used in the production of the animation, Disney's second full length feature, over 80 years ago!
The Ozalid measures 410 x 330mm and is a true piece of Disney Studio history.
