DescriptionWalt Disney Studios (attributed) - Background Original Art (Disney, undated). The Griffith Observatory has been a major Los Angeles landmark since 1935. Ranking seventh on the list of major tourist attractions of Southern California, it sits on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood, where it commands a stunning view of the Los Angeles basin below. Thousands of people enjoy the view from its balconies, especially at night. This remarkable version of this famous building has been attributed to the Walt Disney Studios, specifically used for a Goofy cartoon. The cool glow of the Observatory against the atmospheric Los Angeles city below is breath-taking. The art measures 12.5" x 15.5" and is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "I found this background painting at one of the Phil Seuling conventions, years back. I had no idea at the time that it might have come from a Disney cartoon; all I knew was that it was certain a beautifully impressionistic shot of the lights of Los Angeles beneath Griffith Observatory (another collecting target along with spaceships and planetariums)."
