Original vintage Cel from The Beatles 'Yellow Submarine' 1968 animated movie. A limited number were released for sale. these pieces at the time were not that collectable as nobody was collecting artwork cels from animated films at that time. This was actually sold at the world-famous B. Altman & Co. New York City department store. It has the original tags. they sold originally at $25 a piece which meant they cost the stores no more than $10 at the time. They came with their own original certificate of authenticity, which calls this a one-of-a-kind piece of original art, a collectors treasure.
Incredibly beautiful piece, this one appears to show member Paul McCartney standing on top of text bubbles of the lyrics to The Beatles' hit song 'Love', in bright colors of pink, lilac, red, beige, maroon, the vibrant hues of The Beatles. It has signatures and markings on the bottom of production details, these appear as, "Love, PT 2" for the scene title, "SC 16" for scene 16, "DEN" in the center, "AC 21" for the act number.
The film depicted the group on a psychedelic quest to Pepperland to free it from the music-hating Blue Meanies. The Blue Meanies take over Pepperland, draining it of all its color and music, firing anti-music missiles, bonking people with green apples, and turning the inhabitants to stone by way of the pointed finger of a giant blue glove. As the only survivor, the Lord Admiral escapes in the yellow submarine and goes to Liverpool to enlist the help of the Beatles.
This cel was used in the scene where the Beatles perform "Love" in Pepperland, the lyrics appear in large colorful and powerful texts in defense against the Blue Meanies efforts to take down The Beatles.
Comes professionally mounted and framed.
