    The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad Painted Pan Production Background (Walt Disney, 1949). Ichabod and his horse go through the forest at night. They hear scary noises, go through a spider web, and a crow flies in his face; he then finds himself within a graveyard. This is the hand-painted pan production background of the graveyard, where Ichabod will meet the Headless Horseman! The background is gouache on board measuring 35" x 12" with a painted area of 27" x 11". The border is marked 2062 Sc 25 Seq 9, with additional notes. Backgrounds on this film were painted by Art Riley, Ray Huffine, Brice Mack, Merle Cox, and Dick Anthony. The detail on this "GRAVEYARD" background is amazing. The stormy sky and threatening trees are a true work of art; it's from the most memorable scene in the film. Finding any original background art from the Adventures of Ichabod segment is not an easy task, especially from the Headless Horseman encounter! There is minor handling and edge wear, with tape on the edges and a small tear in the border, away from the image area. The image remains in Fine condition.
