Lost Art Books’ Joe Procopio has a gallery of The Lost Art of Heinrich Kley which explains that the German illustrator (1863-1945) had a great influence on the look of early Disney animated films:

In fact, Disney himself held up a book of Kley’s drawings during a television appearance and said that they were integral to the studio’s lessons and workshops for newly hired animators.


The art is amazing; Procopio notes that he’s just published two notebooks full of Kley art for those who wish further study.

    The Walt Disney Family Museum just closed up a Heinrich Kley special exhibit featuring some two dozen originals owned by Disney himself.

    Robin Allan’s Walt Disney and Europe: European Influences on the Animated Feature Films of Walt Disney covers this well.
