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. The advantage is that fewer drawings are required, because the cels can be reused for the same movements. Cel animation was invented in the United States at the start of the 20th century. Thanks to Walt Disney, cartoons became a market product that needed to be made quickly. To save time, this technique was devised, where moving parts and non-moving parts of the drawing are 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 December 1, 2010, the cultural legacy of Marten Toonder (all the work created by Marten Toonder himself) was officially transferred to the Museum of Literature in Leiden by his heirs, and has been the property of the Dutch government ever since. 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.

Due to the events described above, there is no chance that further original works from this estate made by Marten Toonder himself and Marten Toonder Studios will be offered “on the market”.

Lot: beautiful, original film cel + the pencil/line drawing of Heer Bommel in excellent condition. See the screenshots (photos 5 and 6) of the scene from the film. This cel (preserved, although many cells were destroyed at the time) was made by Marten Toonder Studios, so it was used for the film. A beautiful piece of animation art.
