Cookie Carnival (1935)|
Master set-up of Some Cookies.
Gingerbread men parade goers get a great seat for the Cookie Carnival. This master set-up sets the scene for the entire story. The participants of the cookie parade all must make their entrance through the filigreed Arch of Beauty
This set-up is a marvelous example of the depth and perspective found in master backgrounds. The viewer must look through the stone arch in the foreground to see the grandeur and excitement beyond the Arch of Beauty!
This background appears in the opening scene of the film while the parade marches in. The cookies in the cel do not appear in the film.
Cel has become slightly wavy which is fairly common for vintage animation cels. The light reflection is visible in the web image only and is not on the actual piece.
There is evidence of paint loss in the two cookies furthest to the left as well as the three cookies on the right hand side.
The background consists of two layers, which are held together by staples along the top edge, which can easily be matted out.
The size of this piece is 12 Field (11"x13") and the size of the image is 3.5" h x 11" w.
