(Disneyland, c.1969-70s) An original hand-painted stretching portrait on canvas used within Disneyland's Haunted Mansion attraction. As the elevator descends, the portraits would "stretch" to reveal their full image. However, the consistent "stretching" would eventually cause some wear to the canvas, and these portraits would need to be replaced. In the early years of the attraction, the portraits were all hand-painted with imagery designed by Imagineer Marc Davis, whereas later versions were printed. This stretching portrait depicts the man standing on a barrel of dynamite. The canvas measures 130"x35" and the portrait is in very good condition with some wear from use. These portraits are exceptionally rare and sought-after artifacts from the earliest years of the Haunted Mansion.
