    Mary Poppins Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1964). "Oh it's a jolly holiday for Mary!" This is an original trimmed preliminary production background done for the animated fox chase sequence in Mary Poppins. Backgrounds for the animated segment in this film were done by Al Dempster, Don Griffith, Art Reilly, and Bill Layne. This is painted in gouache on trimmed background board measuring 16" x 12". A slight tear in the middle of bottom border, nowhere near the painted area. A scene number has faded off the top right corner. Any and all production artwork from the animated sequences in this film are considered very rare! Good condition.
