Robert (Bob) Smith

We are VERY pleased to have made the acquaintance of the widow of Robert (Bob) Smith and worked with her to make some of Bob’s animation artwork available to collectors. Robert was not only an important animator but also a well-known fine artist as well. His work has been exhibited in major museums around the world including the Smithsonian and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as being displayed in the White House under two Presidents. But he (like many other masters) is not as well known by the public for his contributions in the animation art world. Even though his work spans all the major studios and many of the greatest animated features of all time.

 

 

IT'S NEARLY HERE! Just a sample for now...

Robert worked at Hanna Barbera, Marvel, Jim Henson productions, Filmation, Disney and more. He worked on Sleeping Beauty, Oliver and Company, Rescuers Down Under, Heidiís Son and The Lion King. In television, he worked on The Jetsons, the Muppet Babies, He-Man and the MOTU, The Transformers, My Little Pony, The Smurfs, Kwicky Koala and more. For a quick glance at his work, see his IMDB PAGE. We are enormously please to offer up this artwork directly from his private collection. It will come with a COA stating this and you will have a piece of animation history in your collection from a world-class master!
