(Walt Disney Studios, 1938) An original production cel set-up of Snow White and several forest animals from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This cel set-up depicts Snow White as she first discovers the Dwarfs' home and peers into the window. This cel was originally prepared by Courvoisier Galleries and is displayed over a hand-painted Courvoisier background. Guthrie Courvoisier was an art dealer who recognized that animation production cels were artwork in their own right, rather than just a part of the process of creating a finalized film. In his gallery, Courvoisier helped establish cels as an art form worthy of collecting and preserving. Many very important animation cels have survived because of Courvoiser Galleries work in the late 1930s to mid-1940s. This cel has an image size of 7.5"x9.25" within its elegant 18.5"x20.25" frame. The condition is very good, with some slight curving to the cels as is commonly seen of cels from this era. Additionally, as expected of Courvoisier cels, the characters are trimmed to image and applied over the background for display.
