    Pinocchio Geppetto, Pinocchio, and Figaro Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1940). Geppetto introduces little Figaro the cat to his latest creation, Pinocchio! This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of all three characters just before the blue fairy brought Pinocchio to life and it can be seen around the 8:58 mark in the film. The meticulously trimmed cels are set over a hand-painted airbrush background and are still in their original mat. "Jealous Figaro" is lightly penciled on the mat to the lower left of the artwork and the back of the frame includes a Courvoisier Galleries sticker. This is a magnificent image of three key characters that literally fills the 6.75" x 6.5" mat opening. Pinocchio was a lifeless puppet for a very brief time at the beginning of this film, so cels of him before the Blue Fairy arrives are very rare. Pinocchio was Disney's second animated feature but widely regarded by those who worked on it as the first feature where the artist's and animators really knew what they were doing. The piece is matted and framed under class with a frame measuring approximately 12" x 11". Condition is Fine. The frame is sold as-is.
