Image of the Day: Quintet


Just over twenty-one years ago, Chuck Jones created the drawing for this limited edition titled "Quintet" and published by Linda Jones Enterprises in 1989.  When you consider the importance that music played in Warner Bros. cartoons and particularly those of Chuck Jones, it's not surprising to see his playful & irreverent take on a classical quintet. 

One thing that has always set Jones' limited editions from those of other studios and directors is that the line used to create the limited edition came from his original drawing(s).  Each Chuck Jones cel art edition has been hand-painted by expert cel painters (a dwindling group of artisans since the advent of computer colorization) and placed over a background approved by the artist (prior to his death) and now by his family.
