    Ferdinand the Bull Production Cel and Presentation Background (Walt Disney, 1938). The story of a mighty bull who preferred smelling flowers to fighting won the Walt Disney an Academy Award. The short was directed by Dick Richard with illustrations by Robert Lawson, based on the book by Munro Leaf. This magnificent piece represents Disney animation at its peak -- a lovely Courvoisier production cel set-up of Ferdinand being carted to the bullfight in Madrid. The cel is trimmed and mounted to a Disney Studios hand-painted presentation background. Ferdinand is 4" high, and the burro-drawn cart is an impressive 13" in length. It's one of the very best pieces we've seen from this beloved short, with a beautiful background in gentle, dream-like colors. Fine condition. Matted and framed with glass to an overall 23.25" x 19.5".
