American Masters

PBS | 9:00 pm

A year after his passing, this new biography showcases the various professional pursuits of American artist Tyrus Wong, whose challenging upbringing didn’t prevent him from having his works showcased alongside those of Picasso and Matisse — and who also was essential to the creation of the animated Disney classic "Bambi." His efforts even can be seen in Hallmark holiday cards. Interviews with Wong himself are incorporated into the profile by director Pamela Tom.
