    Fantasia "Ave Maria" Production Cel with Courvoisier Background (Walt Disney, 1940). Studios After the harrowing Night on Bald Mountain segment with the Chernabog and the Demons, at the breaking of dawn, Fantasia melds into a rendition of Schubert's "Ave Maria". Symbols of the torch-bearing pilgrims are seen walking across the forest in a row. This section calms the viewer after the wildness of Night on Bald Mountain. This is a rare hand-painted cel of the pilgrims with their torches, placed on an airbrushed Courvoisier background with a WDP stamp in the corner. Matted with a mat opening of 9" x 7.5", for an overall size of 20" x 15". Fine condition. Rare and spectacular!
