    Description

    Ferdinand the Bull Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1939). Much to the dismay of the Matador, Ferdinand would rather sniff flowers. That is the overarching theme of this short and it is depicted magnificently in this original Courvoisier setup. This scene is from the Dick Rickard-directed short that was released on 11/25/39, and taken from the book, The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf. Ferdinand the Bull won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short that year and was recently remade into a CGI full-length film. As with most Courvoisier setups, the nitrate cels are trimmed to image and placed on a custom hand-painted wood veneer background. The characters together measure approximately 7" x 8" The art is framed under glass with a mat opening of 9.5" x 9" in a 17" x 16" frame. There are a couple of tiny flecks of paint missing from Ferdinand's left foot; otherwise, condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
