Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)|
Courvoisier cel of Snow White, the Prince from Snow White and some dwarfs.
“And they lived happily ever after…” This Courvoisier set-up hails from Disney’s first feature fairy tale ending and would be the crown jewel to any Disney collection. Art from this short scene is very hard to find and a set-up with this many elements is very special.
The scene appears at the end of the film at between 1:21:48 and 1:21:50.
This piece measures 11.5" x 11.0" while the artwork measures 8.75" x 8.75".
Cel has become slightly wavy which is fairly common for vintage animation cels. The light reflection is only visible in the web image only and is not on the actual piece. As visible in the web image, some paint separation with paint loss has occurred on the Dwarfs and the red paint has smudged in the mouth of Snow White. There is a speck of paint loss in the right pupil of the horse and slight lifting in the horse’s left leg, the hood of the cape on The Prince, and throughout the character Snow White. There is some glue residue from the cel which can be seen as the cel has separated slightly from the background. There is a 0.5" tear in the painted background located under Snow White's right arm and a small scratch in the background of 0.125" located above the hat of the Dwarf on the far right. Specks of green paint have adhered to the back of the cel halfway across the lower edge where the artwork meets the border; this can be easily matted out.
The size of the image is 7.5" h x 7.5" w.
