Full of life and color, this piece is a wonderful addition to any room or collection. "The Big One" is a limited edition hand-painted animation cel, numbered and hand-signed by Myron Waldman (1908-2006). Measures approximately 14" x 12" (background), 12.5" x 10.5" (cel). The cropping will be needed to properly align the cel and background for framing. The artwork is being auctioned with this in mind.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1908, Myron Waldman was an impressive force in the animation industry. He studied art at the Pratt Institute and began working with Fleischer Studio in 1930. There, he did some of his most famous work, including Betty Boop, Raggedy Ann, Gulliver’s Travels, the animated adaptations of Superman, Casper the Friendly Ghost and, of course, Popeye. Throughout his career, which continued into the 1980's, Waldman was an animator in more than 150 films and television shows, and was the animation director for more than fifty. In 1986, he was awarded the Motion Picture Screen Cartoonists Award, and in 1997 he was honored with the Winsor McCay Award, presented in recognition of a lifetime of achievements in animation. Waldman passed away in 2006, but his work continues to inspire and delight kids of every age.

The piece includes an LOA and lifetime authenticity guarantee from Pristine Auction.
