    Description

    The Black Cauldron Preliminary Background Painting (Walt Disney, 1985). This film went through a major re-write after the first version was completed because many executives at Disney felt it was too dark. It featured the work of an array of talented new Disney artists including a young Tim Burton. This is a stunning early vertical pan background concept painting of the Horned King's castle. Background artists on this film include James Coleman, Ron Dias, Donald Towns, Brian Sebern, Tia Kratter, John Emerson, Lisa Keene, and Andrew Phillipson. This original concept painting bears a Disney seal on bottom right and a COA affixed to the back of the frame which measures 38" x 19" with a mat opening of 11" x 29". This is one stunning one-of-a-kind masterpiece from a film with a devoted fan base. The art is in Very Good condition and the frame is sold as-is.
