    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Studio Layout Drawing of All Seven Dwarfs by Shamus Culhane (Walt Disney, 1937). This is an outstanding studio layout drawing of Snow White with all seven dwarfs -- Doc, Sneezy, Bashful, Dopey, Grumpy, Sleepy, and Happy. Art is in graphite with many colored highlights on 16 field 5-peghole animation paper. Images are an impressive 4" - 6" each. This was originally a gift in 1930s by James "Shamus" Culhane (1908 - 1996). Mr. Culhane was famous for his animation work on the "Hi-Ho" scene of the dwarfs marching home out of the diamond mine. He gave this drawing to a friend of his and it has been in the family ever since. A letter to this effect is included on back of frame. The drawing is hand-signed Jimmie Culhane. It appears he put all the dwarfs' name on the bottom border, probably because the film had not been released yet. Framed with glass and matted with a mat opening of 15" x 11", and an overall frame size of 20.5" x 16.5". One of the most impressive Snow White drawings we have ever come across. Minor handling. Very Good condition.
