Key animation artists capture and define the characters' motions without completing details of the character. According to Cheng Xu, curator of the exhibition, a number of Mr. Walt Disney's hand-signed works are on display. 84 drawings are from the private collection of Mr. Archie Robin, the artist of Disney studios in the 1930s. They are provided by his daughter Marianne Robin.
