Mouse in Manhattan
Item: #CC1179
In 1945, MGM created the classic cartoon, “Mouse and Manhattan,” effectively separating the endearing pair of Tom and Jerry, when Jerry leaves country life for the city thrills of New York. Featuring spectacular recreations of New York, and set to the music of “Manhattan Serenade” and “Broadway Rhythm.” Originally drawn by Vince Mussachia and inked by Laurie Dindis, “Mouse in Manhattan” was then silk-screened onto acetate with the Clampett seal of authenticity. Each cel was then hand painted, while the background by Hector Martinez, was reproduced using the fine art Giclee method. Each piece is signed by Joe Barbera. Bill Hanna, who passed away in 2001, is paid tribute with his signature silkscreened in gold on the cel.

Hand Painted Limited Edition Cels - click here to find out more.

Hand-painted limited editions recreate classic moments from great cartoons, using the same materials and techniques as were used in making the originals. Some limited editions are exact reproductions of frames from the films they represent, while others, such as Chuck Jones’ limited editions, are based on contemporary interpretations of great characters and scenes.

In either case, the animator’s drawing is transferred onto acetate cels, then each is meticulously hand-painted by studio artists. Each piece is hand-numbered in small edition sizes of between 100 and 750. In some cases the finished cels are then signed by the animator.

As the great majority of original cels from the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s are no longer in existence, limited edition cels allow collectors an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy some of the greatest moments in the history of animation.

What is Conservation Glass?

Standard glass is suitable for most artwork in most homes. As ambient (indirect) sunlight and artificial light do not present a fading risk, most people do not require special UV filtering glass.

If you have a lot of direct sunlight in your home, you may want to upgrade your artwork purchase to conservation glass. Conservation glass filters out 97% of harmful UV rays and will prevent fading of signatures and artwork, as well as yellowing of paper.

The best thing to do is avoid hanging any art or photographs in direct sunlight. If you can't avoid direct sunlight, conservation glass is well worth the additional cost.
