    The Black Cauldron Throne Room Painted Background Color Key by Ron Dias (Walt Disney, 1985). It is amazing the amount of talent that was brought in to work on The Black Cauldron. Here is another example of a great artist being brought in: an outstanding pan background color key of the Horned King's Throne Room, from the hand of Master Disney artist and background painter, Mr. Ron Dias (1937 - 2013). The art is in gouache on board measuring 23" x 5", mounted to a 28" x 10" backing board. A clear sheet of acetate is over the artwork. Ron Dias hand-signed the artwork in bottom left corner. Mr. Dias' home address at the time is on the reverse side of the backing board. An amazing painting! Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
