    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs "Good Friends All!" Painting Original Art (Walt Disney/New York Graphics Society, 1947). The New York Graphics Society is New York's "Oldest Museum," with origins beginning in 1804. They had a rare license with the Walt Disney Company in 1946 to produce a series of four lithographic prints: two featuring Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and two of Bambi. They sold portfolios of the four prints in three different sizes. Each litho sold had a bottom border notice that read "Copyright New York Graphics Society Fine Art Publishers. Published with the Cooperation of Walt Disney Productions, Calif." The four pieces that they published were all painted by Walt Disney Studio artists. The artist of these magnificent paintings is unknown, but may have been from the hands of Hank Porter, Samuel Armstrong, or even Campbell Grant. This is the original Walt Disney Studio painting for the piece titled "Good Friends All!" It showcases Snow White with all seven dwarfs, as well as her forest animal friends. This is a very large gouache painting, framed in Plexiglas, with an overall size of 27" x 32", and a mat opening of 23" x 20". Nice images of 9" for Snow White, with 5" for the dwarfs. The detail in the forest is amazing. Please note, this is the published original painting for the New York Graphics Society lithograph, sold in 1947, and not a reproduction or later recreation. This is one of the very first major Fine Art license deals ever done at the Walt Disney Studio. A very important piece. A vintage 13.5" x 11.5" New York Graphic Society Litho print of this image is included with the art. Frame is sold as-is; art condition is Very Good.
