Ferdinand the Bull (1938)|
Courvoisier cel of Ferdinand The Bull and the Matador.
This piece is the best Ferdinand piece we have ever had. Perfect for the discerning Ferdinand collector.
A bullfighter encounters the worst thing that could ever happen in his career: a bull who would not fight back! The bare chest of the bullfighter, who is doing his impression of an easy target, has a tattoo of a reddish-colored flower with the word "daisy" written across it (very funny!)
This piece comes with the Courvoisier Gallery certificate attached to the default frame backing.
The viewing aperture measures approximately 7"H by 9"W, and the overall piece measures about 16.5"H by 17.5"W matted and framed.
There is some very slight waviness of the cel which is characteristic of classic vintage cels such as this and does not detract from the overall appeal of this piece. There is a small nick on the upper right edge of the default moulding and parts of the lower part of the paper backing of has loosened from the moulding.
Framing was done prior to its arrival at WWA thus the list price is reflective of the art only--the piece comes with the frame pictured. There is no change in price due to the frame--it can be de-framed upon request at purchase but will not change the price of the piece.
The size of the image is 5" h x 8.5" w.
