Mowgli and Baloo key master setup from The Jungle Book

24 Jul

(Walt Disney Studios, 1967) Original production key master cel and background setup featuring Mowgli and Baloo from The Jungle Book, showing Baloo following Mowgli as he scampers up a tree. The cels are trimmed to image and placed on the hand-painted production background as prepared by the Disney Art Props Department; Mowgli is keyed to the extremely detailed background and Baloo was subsequently added to the scene by Art Props. Baloo measures 6 x 6.5 and Mowgli measures 2.5 x 3.5, with a mat opening of 15 x 10.5. Mat dimensions are 23.5 x 20. The piece has the original Art Props label on the reverse. In fine condition. While many later Disney features had animators responsible for a single character, in The Jungle Book the animators designed entire sequences. A highly desirable and well-presented piece from a classic animated feature film—the last that Disney himself worked on.

Bidding for the Animation Auction opens Aug 14, 2014 & ends Aug 21, 2014
