    Old MacDonald Duck Master Pan Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1941). "Old MacDonald had a farm..." sings Donald Duck as this short begins. If there ever a lot that showcased the "Art of Disney," this is it. This is a Master pan production background from this Jack King-directed Donald Duck short, which was released on 9/12/41. Here, we see the opening panning shot of the farm. It comes into frame about 27 seconds into the short, as soon as the credits are done. The background art is on board measuring 48" x 12" with the farm image taking up 33.5" x 12". The watercolor paint dabs on both ends of the background art are an added artistic treat, quite attractive on their own. This background also was used in the book Setting the Scene: The Art and Evolution of Aviation Layouts by Fraser MacLean for Chronicle books in 2001. Disney Stamps are on the back of the production pan background as well. Fine condition.
