    Description

    Eyvind Earle The Truth About Mother Goose London Bridge Production Cels and Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1957). "What's the truth about Mother Goose... lets clear up all the mysteries" sings the jazz trio to open this Disney cartoon. This Academy Award nominated cartoon was co-directed by Bill Justice and Woolie Reitherman. It told stories behind "Little Jack Horner," "Mary-Mary Quite Contrary," and "London Bridge is Falling Down." Backgrounds on this short were done by Colin Campbell, Al Dempster, Richard Thomas and Disney Legend Inductee, Eyvind Earle. This is an original Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000) hand-painted production background of London Bridge. It is seen in the very opening moments of this segment. There are some cels of the ships and homes across from the bridge. These are key to the background, making this a very rare Eyvind Earle Key Master setup! Beautifully detailed painting. The piece is in a frame of 21" x 17" with a mat opening of 14.5" x 10.5" Frame is sold as-is. Artwork has minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
