Description

    The Snowman Production Backgrounds Group of 4 (Terrytoons, 1940). A wonderful group of four hand-painted production backgrounds from the Mannie Davis-directed short. South Pole animals build a snow man who comes to life... and terrifies them. Watercolor and gouache on 10" x 11" and 10" x 13" heavyweight animation background sheets. These are simple, but elegant paintings of winter weather -- the first showing heavy snow clouds, with what looks to be an airbrush effect for shading. The second is of a much less ominous-looking sky, and the third and fourth are both delicate and understated scenes of the interior of a cave wall. "T-411" is written on three out of the four paintings in the top left corner. One background is trimmed, without peg holes. All are in Fine condition.
