Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)|
Concept piece of The Wicked Witch.
After drinking a diabolical mixture to transmute the Evil Queen to the Wicked Witch a nasty shadow is cast upon the wall to show the transformation from dangerous beauty to wrinkled hag.
This pencil drawn piece measures 6.45" x 8.45". Handwritting on the back reads " From story sketch books sc-26-sequence 7A page 46-".
There is evidence of pinholes at each corner and one halfway across and 0.25" below the upper edge. As pinning up work for evaluation was often part of the creative process, this is fairly common for this type of work. The paper has a tinge of color change along the right edge and as visible in the web image, there are specks of darker discoloration at the upper right corner. There is a 0.5" vertical tear located halfway across the lower edge. There is a very light fold of 1.25" across the lower right corner and 0.75" across the lower left corner.
