The Walt Disney Family Museum has opened a new exhibit focused on one of the studio’s legendary Nine Old Men: “Leading Ladies and Femmes Fatales: The Art of Marc Davis.” The show will be up through November 3. Unlike the museum’s current Mary Blair exhibition, the Davis show is much smaller, with around 70 pieces on display.
In October, Disney Editions will release “Marc Davis: Walt Disney’s Renaissance Man,” a 208-page portfolio of artwork dedicated to Disney Nine Old Man Marc Davis.
Italian-American artist Joe Magro was hired at Disney in 1936 during the studio’s expansion to produce Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Magro left Disney in 1937 and returned to the East Coast. When Magro left, his Disney colleagues presented him with a “good luck” book filled with gag drawings.
