    Description

    Walt Kelly - Snow White "Torture Chamber" Preliminary Sketch Original Art (Walt Disney, 1936). Walt Kelly turned in this inspirational sketch for Disney's upcoming first full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, providing a chilling image of what might be the Wicked Witch's torture chamber of horrors. It's a side of Kelly (and Disney) rarely seen, and certainly not something used in the final film -- think of the nightmares kiddies would have after viewing this! The graphite, red, and blue pencil drawing has an image area of approximately 9.25" x 8", and is matted to an overall size of 15.5" x 13". The art has a few minor stains (from tape, transferred from another page -- there is no tape on the art itself), and a small tear along the bottom, next to the hand-written caption. Overall condition is Very Good, and the piece, which was eventually published in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #632, remains an attractive example of early Walt Kelly art.
