"Cinderella" (1950) [Series] - Cinderella and Birds Cel

A series of "Cinderella" items in the Cowan Collection.

We collected this one pretty early -- before we were able to buy art with production backgrounds.

This is a very nice cel grouping: a great Cinderella cel of her in bed just waking up and a cel with two birds on it. The background is a from a Cinderella book... Well, you do with what 'ya got...

"Cinderella" was the first Disney animated feature to be completely shot and then edited in a live-action reference version before being committed to cel and ink.

Cinderella was created by Marc Davis (1913-2000) was one of the most talented artists at and a main animator for Disney Studios. Some of the animated characters he designed were Thumper from “Bambi” (1942), Cinderella from “Cinderella” (1951), Tinker Bell in “Peter Pan” (1953), Maleficent and Briar Rose in “Sleeping Beauty” (1959) and Cruella De Vil in “101 Dalmatians” (1961).

Ilene Woods was the voice of Cinderella. Actress Helene Stanley performed the live-action reference not only for Cinderella, but also for Princess Aurora in "Sleeping Beauty" and Anita Radcliff in "101 Dalmatians."
