Animation Art (collection)

The following contain some of the finest cartoon animation art for sale anywhere in the country today. These original animation cels and drawings are fast becoming antiques as the labor-intensive hand processes used to make them have been discarded for computer technology. Each piece of production Animation fine art seen in our online animation art gallery was used in the making of an animated movie, cartoon, television program or advertisement.

What is now a collectible work of Animation art was once simply a frame in a series of frames, sometime as many a 27 per second, that, when filmed in sequence, gave life to characters like Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Fred Flintstone and the Pink Panther to name but a few. Each frame was first hand-drawn on paper and then hand-painted onto cellulose or clear acetate by a team of dedicated and talented artists. The resulting images were then filmed, one frame at a time against hand-painted background imagery.

This artwork was originally seen as little more than a byproduct of the final movie and much vintage animation art was lost or destroyed many years ago. Thus, original production animation art is very rare and highly prized today. Gallery C has been a national animation art dealer since 1985 and we pride ourselves on offering rare, hard-to-find vintage animation artwork from virtually all the major studios including, Disney, Warner Brothers, MGM, DePatie-Freleng, Walter Lantz, and Hanna-Barbera.

Whether you are searching for a classic Chuck Jones drawing of the Grinch, Daffy Duck or Bugs Bunny, or are more interested in Walt Disney vintage cels from Fantasia to The Little Mermaid, we may have or be able to find what you are looking for.
