    Description

    Beatles Yellow Submarine John, Paul, George, and Ringo Preliminary Color Model Cel (United Artists/King Features, 1968). One of the most amazing pieces of artwork we have come across from the making of this film! This is a color model test cel of all four Beatles -- John, Paul, George, and Ringo! It is marked "4BS 2nd version." Hand-painted on a 16 field 3-peghole animation cel, a color code at the upper right reads "Crimson -- Plaka 350." This cel comes from the Estate of Bill Ward who was an employee of TVC Studios in London in the 1960s/70s. This is a rare pre-production color model cel. The colors would eventually change as the film got closer to production. The Beatles stand 8" to 9" tall. Some minor paint loss in John's shirt. This is one of the earliest pre-production pieces of Yellow Submarine art we have come across. In Very Good condition.
