    Description

    The Nightmare Before Christmas Limited Edition Etching (Disney/Touchstone, 1993).
    The Nightmare Before Christmas originated in a poem written by Tim Burton in 1982 while he was working as an animator at Walt Disney Feature Animation. With the success of Vincent in the same year, Burton began to consider developing The Nightmare Before Christmas as either a short film or 30-minute television special to no avail. Over the years, Burton's thoughts regularly returned to the project, and in 1990, he made a development deal with Walt Disney Studios. From Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas we have a superb etching of Sally, a rag doll/scarecrow like creation and the love interest of Jack Skellington aka the Pumpkin King. The age-old, labor-intensive process of creating an etching begins with the master engraver who needle-scratches the imagery into a varnish-covered copper plate. The printing process is accomplished with a hand-driven printing press and wet handmade paper. After drying, each print is water-colored and numbered. This piece measures 6.5" x 10" and is numbered 16/150. The artwork is in a frame of 13.5" x 17". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork is in Fine condition.
