DescriptionFantasia "Pastoral Symphony" Production Cel on Master Pan Production Background (Walt Disney, 1940). Fantasia is arguably Walt Disney's animated magnum opus and its "The Pastoral Symphony" segment boasts some of the greatest animators in studio history including Fred Moore, Ward Kimball, Eric Larson, Art Babbit, and Ollie Johnston. Offered in this lot is an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel setup of the Pegasus family in flight. The character images from the 1:16:44 mark measure together approximately 7" x 6". They have each been meticulously trimmed to the image and applied a Master pan production background that appears just seconds later at the 1:16:50 mark. This one-of-a-kind master setup was originally prepared by Courvoisier galleries. It's an absolutely gorgeous image from the first film to present animation as an artform. The 80-year-old production setup is in a 39" x 23" frame under Plexiglas with a mat window of 27" x 10.5". Minor handling and a small glue stain by the hoof of Father Pegasus; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
