Rare and professionally matted with 17" x 15" outside dimensions. The Barney figure itself is roughly 6" x 6".

This is a one of a kind hand done production drawing and comes with a certificate stating same from the well known animation gallery, Gallery Lainzberg. Lainzberg is no longer open but they were pioneers in animation art sales and are still searchable on the net because of that.

This is from our retail managers personal collection and has never been displayed or removed (save to look at it) from the original preservation envelope. Lainzberg was known for their quality layered matting jobs with nice color accents. This piece has inner matting in complimentary Purple/Lavender followed by one in Black. Our retail manger dealt exclusively with John Cairns at Lainzberg who was their first sales representative for telephone catalog sales who went one to open his own gallery after Lainzberg closed in 2002. This piece was purchased in the late 1980's.

Back side still has bag attached with certificate and gold authenticity sticker for framing. Obviously survivability is a real issue for older pieces and pieces with great characters images such as these are even rarer.
