ABOUT THE MEDIUM: Original Production Cels are one-of-a-kind pieces of art that were used in the creation of an animated film or television show. Each has been hand-painted by studio artists on a piece of celluloid acetate and has been photographed over a background painting to create a frame of the finished production.
ABOUT THE IMAGE: This excellent full-figure hand-painted animation cel of Duchess was created in the Disney ink-and-paint department and photographed during the making of the animated feature. Duchess casts loving eyes on the domesticated Thomas O'Malley as Madame Bonfamille prepares to take a photograph of her feline family in the film's happy ending.
