“Night on Bald Mountain”

(Walt Disney Studio, 1940)

Full color production cels
Courvoisier setup
7.5″ x 9″ mat opening


This setup is so awesome!  The green fire women are on a separate cel from the fiery green flames cel.  Both are on top of a hand-painted Courvoisier background which combines to create a great sense of depth.  This scene appears around 4:45 into the Night on Bald Mountain part of Fantasia.  Fun fact: this writer once sang in a performance of the Mussorgsky “Dream of the Peasant Lad Gritsko” with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra under Zdeněk Mácal, about a million years ago.


This cel setup is available for auction!
