    Bambi The Meadow Master Pan Production Background with Trimmed Cels (Walt Disney, 1942). "Get up... try again" Bambi's mother says to him. In Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston's book Bambi - The Story and the Film they write, "Of all the endearing films that Walt Disney created with his staff, none has had a strong impact on viewers as Bambi. It has beauty of thought and visualization, an integrity, a fantasy, and a power that lives with people the rest of their lives." This lot is simply the pinnacle of this film's Art Direction and showcases the influence of Tyrus Wong on the backgrounds of this film. This is a rare pan Master production background of the meadow, attributed to the hand of Robert McIntosh. It is oil on paper, framed with Plexiglas and the mat opening is 34" x 10". It is one of the single most beautiful backgrounds from this film we have seen, iconic to this classic Disney animated feature film. With this lot are four trimmed-to-image hand-inked hand-painted cels of bunnies to make a sweet setup. Each one is approximately 2". This magnificent background can be seen around the 11:01 mark where Bambi is learning to walk with Thumper and the bunnies. The cel of the bunnies can be placed on this background for a lovely setup. Fine condition.
