    Description

    The Little House Publicity Cels with Preliminary Background Presentation (Walt Disney, 1952). This story came from the 1942 children's book by Virginia Lee Burton, adapted to the screen by Bill Peet and Bill Cottell. The Wilfred Jackson-directed cartoon was released on August 8, 1952, with Les Clark, Claire Weeks, and Marc Davis as part of the animation crew. Backgrounds were painted by Claude Coats and Ray Huffine. This is a rare preliminary background painting with two hand-inked and painted Disney Studio-prepared publicity cels that have been trimmed to the image and mounted to the background. Little art from this film is known to exist, and this is a visually striking presentation setup. Fine condition.
