    Description

    Bedknobs and Broomsticks Preliminary Painted Background with Test Cel (Walt Disney, 1971). An excellent preliminary production background of the shore where Fisherman Bear pulls the bed in bearing humans, painted by Mr. Dick Kelsey (1905 - 1987). The background is painted in gouache on 16 field 3-peghole background board. The painting is created off a Joe Hale background layout drawing. An unpainted test cel of the Fisherman Bear fishing is on the hand-painted background. Mr. Kelsey served two terms with the Walt Disney Studio. He worked as a background artist and art director, as well as a Theme Park Designer. His work at Disney rarely surfaces; this is a beautiful painting. Minor handling wear. Fine condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
