    The Great Mouse Detective Ratigan Production Cel with Pre-Production Background (Walt Disney, 1986). The popularity of this film signified one of the early signs of a rebirth for Disney animation. Based on the children's book Basil of Baker Street it featured the voice of Hollywood legend Vincent Price as the voice of the villainous Ratigan. This is an original production cel of said villain who measures 7" x 8" on a laminated 16 field cel with a Disney seal (under the mat). The cel which can be seen at the 23:08 mark is over an original hand-painted pre-production background of Basil's study. It is painted in goauche and acrylic on board. Pre-production concept paintings are one-of-a-kind and very rare. The combination of cel and background work wonderfully together. The setup is framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 8.5" x 10.5" in 16.5" x 18.5" frame. Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
