    Sleeping Beauty Princess Aurora and Three Fairies Production Cel and Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1959). "Princess Aurora... tonight we're taking you back to your father, King Stefan." The fairies inform Briar Rose of who she is and why she can never see Price Phillip again. She yells no, and runs to her cottage bed and sobs. The fairies reaction is, "And we thought she's be so happy." This is an outstanding trimmed production cel of Princess Aurora and the three Fairies -- Fauna, Merryweather, and Flora, climbing the castle's stairs at night, having just returned to the castle. This great hand-inked, hand-painted four-character production cel is on its trimmed Key Master hand-painted production background. Amazing detail on each step. The light peeking through the top of the long curved stairway is amazing. Backgrounds on this film were painted by Frank Armitage, Al Dempster, Bill Layne, Dick Anthony, Richard Thomas, Walt Peregoy, Ralph Hulett, Phil Mattola, Anthony Rizzo, and the film's Color Stylist/Art Director, Mr. Eyvind Earle. His influence can be seen throughout this magnificent castle painting. Key Master setup is in a mat of 17" x 16" with a mat opening of 10" x 11". Back of the production background includes a Walt Disney Studio stamp. Background is approximately 15.5" x 12.5". Studio production numbers and scene and sequence numbers are also on the reverse of background. Minor handling. Very Good condition.
