    Description

    The Three Caballeros Donald Duck Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1944). The seventh animated feature from the Walt Disney Studios was The Three Caballeros starring Donald Duck, who is joined by old friend, José Carioca, the cigar-smoking parrot from Saludos Amigos, and a new friend, the pistol-packing rooster, Panchito Pistoles. Presented is a terrific Courvoisier production cel of Donald Duck from The Three Caballeros. In the late 1930s, Walt Disney was riding on a tidal wave of success. Guthrie Courvoisier, President of the highly esteemed Courvoisier Galleries in San Francisco, was aware of Disney's escalating reputation, and saw vast opportunity in it. Guthrie believed that the Disney paintings on celluloid could be sold as valuable art pieces to the public through art galleries and museums all over the world. Walt and Roy agreed and so the Courvoisier/Disney art program was born. This rare Courvoisier piece has a trimmed-to-image cel of Donald placed on a hand-painted and airbrushed background. The piece has the original matboard with a WDP stamp. The art is in a frame of 13.5" x 12.5". The matboard has an aperture of 6" x 4.5". Frame sold as-is. Included is a certificate of authenticity issued by the Courvoisier Galleries. Artwork condition is Very Good.
