AN ORIGINAL DRAWING OF THE WITCH FROM DISNEY'S "SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS". THIS IS AN ORIGINAL 16 FIELD PENCIL DRAWING OF THE QUEEN'S WITCH FORM FROM DISNEY'S FIRST ANIMATED FULL LENGTH FEATURE FILM "SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS".
THESE DRAWINGS WERE DONE BY THE STUDIO BEFORE THEY WERE TRANSFERED AND PAINTED ON TO CELS. IT WAS HAND RENDERED IN GRAPHITE ON DRAWING PAPER AND SHOWS SOME SLIGHT TONING AND AN OUTLINE FROM PREVIOUS MATTING. THE PENCIL DRAWING IS MUCH DARKER THAN IT APPEARS IN MY PHOTO. IT HAS THE STUDIO ANIMATION IDENTIFICATION STAMP IN THE LOWER LEFT CORNER THAT STATES "PROD 2001" "SEQ 146" AND "SCENE 6".
AS WAS DONE AT THE TIME THESE DRAWINGS HAD PUNCH HOLES ACROSS THE BOTTOM. IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER IS PENCIL WRITTEN THE NUMBER "164" AND THERE ARE ALSO PENCIL WRITTEN INITIALS, WHICH IS NOT IDENTIFIABLE.THE WITCH WAS DESIGNED BY LEGENDARY DISNEY ANIMATOR JOE GRANT, WHO CAME OUT OF RETIREMENT TO WORK ON "LION KING", "ALADDIN", "POCOHANTAS", "MULAN", AND OTHERS. THE LAST FILM HE WORKED ON WAS "CHICKEN LITTLE", WHICH IS DEDICATED TO HIM.
A LARGE COLLECTION OF HIS WORK RESIDES IN THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY IN THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTE. THE WIDTH OF THE IMAGE IS 9. THE HEIGHT OF THE IMAGE IS 7.
THIS PIECE HAS BEEN MATTED AND ARCHIVALLY FRAMED. THE FULL PIECE MEASURES 15 1/4 X 13 1/4. THIS EXACT MOMENT APPEARS ON THE BLURAY AFTER OL GRANNY HAS HANDED SNOW WHITE THE APPLE AT HOUR 01:14:38.
I started collecting NEW and VINTAGE ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTERS especially GONE WITH THE WIND, STAR WARS. All SPIELBERG, DISNEY, ACADEMY AWARD WINNERS, BATMAN, LORD OF THE RINGS, HARRY POTTER. Since I was a 27 year old in 1976 when I moved and lived in NYC.Needless to say, it is a diverse and eclectic collection of over 650 POSTERS. I also collected ANIMATION ART, specifically ORIGINAL DISNEY HAND PAINTED PRODUCTION BACKGROUND PAINTINGS that went under camera in the filming of Disney movies. All the photographs you see of my posters and art are ones that I have taken, not downloaded from other online sites. Whether you're a fan, collector, dealer, and/or looking for an investment piece this is a great opportunity. The Movie and Theatre Poster and Animation Art I offer will be interesting, diverse, original and in many cases a rare opportunity for any collector.
Yes, some are Museum quality pieces, or obviously will be. And wait till you see what will be COMING SOON TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU!!! Too often in life we regret not doing things that we are able to do, for whatever reason, when we are presented with the opportunity to do so. I say Never live with regret.
