Herbert D. Ryman - Petrouchka (unframed) Signed, Limited Edition Print
Herbert D. Ryman
27.5"H. x 21.5"W.
Teaching young artists, passing on his knowledge and skills, was at the heart of so much that occupied Herb Ryman’s life. He inspired and joined in a nighttime painting program for fellow Disney artists, and taught occasionally at Art Center College of Design. While his students at Art Center sketched this model, Herb painted her too. This enduring illustration served as an example, and motivation, for his class.
Disney Artists and Friends Limited Edition Fine Art Prints
For about a dozen years beginning in the late 1960’s, a group of Disney
designers and their spouses, headed originally by Richard Irvine and
his wife Ann, raised scholarship funds for art students. A yearly art
exhibit and sale was held; the very first show, featuring the work of
Herb Ryman, was held at the Hancock Park home of Disney Legend
Harrison “Buzz” Price and his wife, Anne Price. Each year, an artist’s
work was reproduced for the event. The prints shown below are the
very prints from those DAFCA (Disney Artists & Friends of CalArts)
shows. Now these prints (with original signatures by the artists) are available for sale
to the public, many for the first time. All proceeds support the
students of Ryman Arts.
