    Farmyard Symphony Barnyard Animals Trimmed Production Cels and Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1938). This film has very important historical significance. It is thought to be a precursor to Fantasia, as it uses various pieces of classical music within the story. This is an amazing series of trimmed-to-image and mounted to background group of hand-inked, hand-painted production cels of the animals reacting to the call for feeding time. You can see this at about 7:05 into the cartoon. This Silly Symphony short was directed by Jack Cutting, released to theaters on 10/14/38. The cels are glued up on a Key Master preliminary pan trimmed background. There are a total of eleven animals in the food run! This is a very early Art Props studio setup, filled with amazing color and detail. Cloth matted with an opening size of 19.5" x 13" and overall size of 24.5" x 20.5". An important piece! Slight glue stains around cel edges, otherwise Fine condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
