An original production cel and background set-up from the Disney Studios animated film, "Song of the South "(1946). Featuring Brer Fox standing at the top of his tree viewing perch, just as he's about to look through his make shift branch "telescope" to see the just trapped Brer Rabbit, the hand-painted matching set-up was created at the studio and used during the animation process. The piece represents an actual frame of animation that was photographed and appears in the film. This very rare hand-painted production background features a handwritten production number and a hand-signed OK by the film's art director, Harold Doughty. It's hard to decipher the exact matching details in the film due to the low visual quality of the film available for reference, but this background is either the final background photographed and appearing in the film, or a near final preliminary. This is a truly wonderful original matching production set-up that is rare to come across. Measuring 16.75"x19.5" framed with the mat opening measuring 10"x13.25", the piece is in very good condition with a light diagonal crease in the upper left corner of the cel and background.
