Description101 Dalmatians Walt Peregoy Test Background (Walt Disney, 1961). Modernist painter Walt Peregoy was the color stylist for 101 Dalmatians and had an especially strong influence on the look of the backgrounds. This piece is a very rare test/preliminary production background. It is marked "Seq 016. Sc 25." The scene in the film occurs near the climax, when the puppies (along with Pongo and Perdita) have disguised their fur coats with soot and Cruella is slowing driving by, searching for them. The truck outside the window is the one in which the dogs will eventually make their escape. The piece is hand-painted on board with a detailed cel overlay. The new technology introduced in this film involved the use of Xerox machines to photocopy an artist's drawings directly onto the cel, thereby eliminating the need for inkers. Here, the background is painted without outlines; these have all been photocopied onto the cel overlay placed on top -- complete with the photocopied linework. Pre-production design artwork from this film is extremely rare. Board is 20" x 12" with background on 16" x 11". Minor handling and tape around border. In Very Good condition. From the Walt Peregoy Archives.
