    Mr. Magoo-Related UPA Television Pan Production Background, Bob "Yoshi" Inman (UPA, c. 1960s) Spectacular pan production background (possibly from a 1960s television Mr. Magoo short) which depicts a large panoramic vista of a suburban neighborhood at dusk. The entire scene is at a 45-degree angle for a dramatic, sweeping shot under the camera. Intricate detail on all of the houses in the foreground and fabulous use of architectural perspective, which gives way to a rural scene in the background, comprised of mountainous desert. The twilight sky is beautifully lit in a warm orange wash. Painted by long-time UPA color stylist and background artist, Bob "Yoshi" Inman (1927-2016). Rendered in gouache and tempera on smooth hot press watercolor paper. Matted; matt opening measures 21.5" x 10". In Fine condition.
