MICKEY MOUSE BEST FRIEND PLUTO DOWN UNDER DISNEY CEL with COA a LIMITED EDITION sericel depicting Mickey Mouse from the Walt Disney's 1948 short 'Mickey Down Under'.
This is a sericel for Walk Disney's 1948 short Mickey Down Under. It is one of a series of selected limited-edition, screen-printed recreations of artwork from Disney animated films. This sericel, "Mouse's Best Friend," is from scene 59 of Mickey Down Under: Mickey falls on Pluto, releasing the boomerang from his canine companion's mouth.
The studio has chosen to recreate Disney character images from this film using the fine art screen-printing process of color reproduction. Disney artists, working from the original animation drawings used for the production of Mickey Down Under as well as from film reference materials, have translated the original image to a hand-inked and hand-painted cel. This cel was used by American Atelier of El Segundo, California in the production of these sericels.
This limited edition was produced in 1994. It is comprised of a general edition of 5000 sericels and 500 publisher's proofs, for a total maximum of 5500 sericels. Disney Art Editions approved the techniques used in the production of this edition and the proofs thereof. Conforming to the practice of fine-art printing, the screens used to create the edition are destroyed when the edition is completed. The original master ink and paint cels are archived with the publisher. There are no signed or numbered impressions in this edition.
