    Description

    Pocahontas Kekata Presentation Cel Setup and Production Background (Walt Disney, 1995). On February 24, 1996 in New York City, The Art of Pocahontas Auction was held, with only 289 lots. As no production cels were actually used on the film, one-of-a-kind presentation cels were painted by the Walt Disney Ink and Paint Department, made using original animation drawings. Each cel made was placed on hand-painted production background, making a type of a Key Master setup. These background setups were the only production artwork from this film released by Walt Disney Studios. This was lot #19 in the auction, showing Kekata creating a rabbit out of smoke from the fire, to the amazement of the children. This was a four-cel setup with two of the cels actually being production underlays on the hand-painted production background. The cel has a Disney seal and a Disney COA is on back of the frame. Matted with an opening size of 22" x 16" and framed Plexiglas for an overall size of 29.5" x 23.5". This is a beautiful unusually large production background, and a stunning painting. Artwork for this sale rarely comes to market. Fine condition.
