Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1937 Doc, Happy and Dopey frame

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
(Walt Disney Studio, 1937)

Full color production cel
Custom watercolor background
7.5″ x 10.5″ figures

 

These three Dwarfs are all painted on one big production cel, untrimmed, 16-field/5-peghole, made of nitrate.  The curious background watercolor image was commissioned at some point by Stan, and we even found some preliminary drawings and test color palettes of tucked away in a box that housed a progressive lithograph series of Donald Duck.  Just goes to show you never can tell what you’ll find once you start looking around.  Let the spring cleaning commence!
