Walt Disney (1901–1966) Disney created Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Chip and Dale, Bambi, and many other beloved cartoon characters. He received fifty-nine Academy Award nominations and won twenty-six Oscars—more awards and nominations than any other person. He built Disneyland and Walt Disney World and conceived EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow). In this portrait Disney proudly wore the monogram of Smoke Tree Ranch, his beloved, exclusive Palm Springs resort. He specified that the tie tack be included in a posthumous bronze portrait of himself and Mickey Mouse made for Disneyland, perhaps because he had reluctantly sold his stake in the resort to help finance Disneyland.
