Stan Stock is thrilled to have a number of featured animation cels in the April 9th-10th Animation Art Signature Auction out of Dallas Texas.
Disney animation cels from the great animation films of the 20th century continue to attract huge figures at Heritage Auctions’s Animation events. As pre-auction proxy bidding draws to a close, this Heritage Auction is on track to be another show stopper. Live bidding opens today at 11am Heritage Auction’s facilities at Dallas, Texas as well as live across the Web.
“Our formula was to auction primarily fresh material that had never before been offered for sale, with almost no reserves, and to cross promote it to a new generation of bidders as well as seasoned animation collectors,” said Jim Lentz, director of Animation Art for Heritage. “We plan to continue in this vein and also to continue emphasizing the whole range of animation from 1928-2000.
“The great animators were actors with pens and pencils, each frame fully invested with their talent, and no one did it better than Disney. The Evil Queen is, to this day, one of the great villains of cinema, and she was at her terrifying best when she became the Old Hag and set off the destroy Snow White.”
