    Description

    Beauty and the Beast Belle Presentation Cel and Master Production Background (Walt Disney, 1991). "There goes the baker with his tray like always..." The Art of Beauty and the Beast Auction was held in Los Angeles on October 17, 1992. It featured 249 lots of artwork. With no hand-painted production cels used, Walt Disney Studios used the original animation drawings to create a one-of-one presentation cel that was then placed on the hand-painted Master production background. This was Lot 18 in the sale. The lot is a stunning production background of the town Belle lives in. The cel is of Belle firmly entranced in reading one of her beloved books, oblivious to the goings-on around her. Stunning production background of 11.5" x 17". This very important lot is Plexiglas-front framed with a mat opening of 17" x 12". A Disney seal is on the cel. Frame size is 24" x 20". This was the first animated feature film to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Film. The year 2016 has seen a Box Office smash for its live-action version, a global Broadway successful musical. Lots from this historic sale rarely come to market. Fine condition.
