    Description

    Cool World Production Background (Paramount, 1992). Cool World marked Bakshi's return to feature films after almost a decade. It was originally pitched as an animated horror film about an underground cartoonist who fathers an illegitimate half-real/half-cartoon daughter, who hates herself for what she is and tries to kill him. This is an original hand-painted production background from this animated/live-action film. The design of the movie drew heavily on the character styles of the early Fleischer studio and the images in this gouache and acrylic painting bear that out. The one-of-a-kind painting is framed under glass with a mat opening of 9.5" x 14" in a frame measuring 167.5" x 21.5". Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
