Description

    Beauty and the Beast Presentation Cel and Production Background (Walt Disney, 1991). This Walt Disney animated feature went on to gross over 424 million dollars, spawn two direct-to-video films, a TV series, and an award-winning Broadway Musical that still runs globally today. The film won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture in the Comedy and Musical category, and more importantly, it became the first animated feature film to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Film! The was the second Disney film to use no painted cels, but they did employ hand-painted production backgrounds. On October 17, 1992, Sotheby's had an auction featuring one-of-a-kind production backgrounds, paired with specially produced "One of One" hand-painted cels created by Disney's Ink and Paint Department, and stamped with a special gold seal. This was lot #4, depicting Belle's opening song. The background is of the village barbershop; secondary characters, including the Barber and his customer, are included in this cel set-up. Belle is a striking 6.5"; the combined image area is 16.25" x 11.5", and the set-up is matted and framed with glass for an overall 25.5" x 21.5". A Sotheby's Certificate of Authenticity is included. The detail on the background from this memorable opening Sequence is a work of art it its own right. Fine condition.
