    The Fox and the Hound Book Illustration Painted Backgrounds Group of 7 (Walt Disney, c. 2000s). Set of seven lush outdoor scene hand-painted backgrounds, created for animation-style book illustrations. One is the cover to Friends Forever, part of the Baby's First Disney Books series; it shows the rock Copper in on and Tod is sniffing around, plus the ground and trees behind them. The art is mixed media on paper attached to board, image area 9.5" x 10.5". A photocopy of the rough draft (with animals in place) is taped over the art; these are present on all but one painting. The artboards range in size from 11.25" x 13.5" up to 21.5" x 13.25", with various image sizes, from small spots to full-size scenes of bushes, trees, and creeks. One is a view of a well, with portions of a house and trees. These would make wonderful backgrounds for any number of animation cels. Overall Very Good condition.
