Description
Marten Toonder Studio's - Tom Poes & Heer Bommel - Heer Bommel - uit "Als je begrijpt wat ik bedoel" - (1982)
Marten Toonder Studio's - Very fine - 1 Original artwork - Formaat: 33x 27 cm.

Explanation: in the cel animation technique, the maker draws the moving parts of the animation on transparent sheets, or “cels”. 24 cels are needed for one second of animation. This technique has the advantage that it requires fewer illustrations, as cels can be reused for the same movement. Cel animation was invented in the United States at the start of the 20th century. Thanks to Walt Disney, cartoons became a marketable product that had to be made quickly. To save time, this technique was devised, where moving parts and non-moving parts of the drawing can be separated from each other. The animation is first drawn in pencil (line drawing) and then transferred to a clear transparent sheet (cel). The transparency allows placing multiple layers on top of each other.

On 1 December 2010, Marten Toonder's cultural legacy (all the work created by Marten Toonder himself) was officially transferred by his heirs to the Leiden Literary Museum and has since become the property of the State of the Netherlands. In November 2018, the archives of Marten Toonder Studios were donated to the Museum of Literature in The Hague and the Eye Film Museum in Amsterdam. See the last photo.

Because of these developments, it is impossible to expect any of the original work by Marten Toonder and by Marten Toonder Studio’s from this inheritance to be offered on the market.

Lot: beautiful, original film cel + the pencil/line drawing of Heer Bommel in excellent condition. See the screenshot (photo 4) of the scene from the film. This cel (preserved, as many cels were destroyed at the time) was made by Marten Toonder Studios, so it was used for the film. A beautiful piece of animation art.
