ORIGINAL HAND PAINTED FILM ANIMATION CELL OF 'BASHFUL' FROM SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS.

Published: Walt Disney Enterprises. USA. 1937.

Date: 1937

ORIGINAL HAND COLOURED IMAGE ON CELLULOID. Image is 6.6 x 4.5 inches. Mounted glazed and framed to give a full size of 13.1 x 10.8 inches. A rare original hand-painted sheet of Celluloid from Disney's first animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, showing Bashful. This cell was actually used in the filming process and is an original studio illustration. The image is mounted over a blue background with silver stars and with the character's name in black below the image. The black lettering is a little lost on the dark background but still readable. The colour image is in fine and bright condition, the colours still vibrant. The film was issued in 1937 but not many cells were released for commercial purposes over the following decades. This is one of a number that Disney released for sale during the 1970's. A label from the Disney offices states that this painting on celluloid was actually used in the filming and that only a very limited number have been placed on the market. The image is glazed using 99% UV protection Tru Vue Museum Glass. Fine condition.
