    Hercules Painted Production Background with Zeus Presentation Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1997). "My boy, my little Hercules" says Zeus to his son. On Saturday, June 30, 1998, The Art of Disney's Hercules Auction was held in New York City. It had approximately 123 lots of art from this movie offered for sale. With no production cels used in this film, original animation drawings were used to create one-of-one presentation cels by the Disney Ink and Paint department. This cels were placed on the actual hand-painted production backgrounds to make Master setups. This is from lot 20 of that sale, an oversized hand-painted production background on board measuring 20" x 25". The one-of-a-kind hand-painted presentation cel features a massive, impressive image of Zeus in his throne. It is a three-cel setup with one being a production underlay. Zeus is 7" x 10" on his throne. Matted with a mat opening of 14" x 14". A Disney seal is on the cel and Disney COA is on back of mat. Very hard to find pieces from this sale today. Fine condition.
