An original background color key concept from the Disney Studios animated film, "The Rescuers" (1977). Featuring a stunning rendering of a swamp, the hand-painted concept was created at the studio by artist James Coleman, signed on the reverse, and used during the animation process. The concept was used to develop and finalize the color palette, layout of the action, and the overall feel of the scene. When a color concept is finalized during production, it becomes the reference tool that animators use to paint cels and backgrounds, as well as to further progress through the storyboarding and layout of the individual scenes. Measuring 5.5"x6" overall, the concept is in very good condition with minor edge wear.
