Courvoisier cel of Mlle. Upanova.
Fantasia is full of memorable moments but none were quite as outlandishly humorous as the ballet section set against Ponchielliís Dance of the Hours. It all begins with Mlle. Upanova, the prima donna ostrich who serves as the subject of this beautiful Courvoisier Cel. Mlle, with her less than elegant proportions, was used as an irreverent, yet affectionate, parody of the pretensions of classical ballet. Here she is seen up on her toes, wings out, dancing with all the grace and beauty that only an ostrich could possess. The absurdity of it is sure to bring a smile to the face of anyone who looks upon this piece. The size of the visible artwork measures 7.75" x 5" while the frame measures 12.5" x 9.5".
Very slight paint separation with no lifting and in excellent condition for vintage cels of its age.
