Description

    Mr. Bug Goes to Town Preliminary Pan Background with Smack the Mosquito Production Cel (Max Fleischer, 1941). Magnificent Fleischer Studios hand-painted trimmed preliminary pan production background, by master background artist Anton Loeb (1908 - 1984). He has hidden his signature as the signature on the $5 bill used as a carpet. Very similar to the actual background used in film at about the 25:46 mark, this pan background is 34" x 12" with the painted image area 30" x 12". A trimmed-to-the-image, hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Smack the Mosquito is mounted to the background. Nice full figure image of 5". Great production notes in left side margin. The gouache painting on light board has been remounted to a white backing board for preservation. A fantastic piece of artwork. Matted with a mat opening of 29" x 12", and overall size of 35.75" x 17.75". Fine condition.
