Tyrus Wong was the lead artist for Bambi, responsible for the beautifully rendered watercolor backgrounds and overall style of the movie.  Although he received little credit at the time, Wong’s influential career and artwork have recently received a lot of attention from art historians after his death. 

More can be learned about Tyrus Wong in the 2015 PBS documentary Tyrus, directed by Pamela Tom. The full documentary can be viewed on the official PBS website.
