    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Old Hag Layout Drawings (Walt Disney, 1937).
    Four days before Christmas in 1937, the animation world went from simple cartoon shorts to full fledge movie making magic when Walt Disney released his masterpiece, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Walt Disney had been contemplating making a feature-film since the early 1930s. He had considered story titles like Babes in Toyland, Rip Van Winkle and even an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland before settling on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In this lot are two amazing layout animation drawings. The first illustration shows the old Hag in silhouette holding the poison apple. The second piece is a remarkably detailed layout drawing of the cottage window. Both pieces were rendered in graphite on 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper and contain notations from the animator on the drawings. The drawings are floated in a frame of 33.5" x 17" under Plexiglas with mat openings of 12" x 10.5". Frame sold as-is. This would make a fantastic addition to any animation art collection. Original production art from Snow White is considered highly desirable by discerning collectors. Age-related toning, normal handling and edge wear. Otherwise Very Good condition.
