    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Concept Drawing by Ferdinand Horvath (Walt Disney, 1937). This is a masterpiece of a drawing by "forgotten" Disney legend, F. H. Horvath (1891 - 1973), showcasing a tearful Snow White in the forest, soon after the Huntsman has sent her away. In Didier Ghez's great book They Drew As They Pleased -- The Hidden Art of Disney's Golden Age (The 1930s), he writes "Horvath's drawings while immensely creative, were also strictly linked to projects that Walt was talking at precise points in time". This drawing is on 12 field 5-peghole paper that has been mounted to board, signed in the bottom right corner. The graphite drawing of the forest and Snow White in tears is one of the single most dramatic pieces of early concept/character development artwork we have seen. It was originally sold by Horvath's wife at an auction by Russ Cochran in 1976. Overall, the image measures 12" x 9.5", Snow White measures 3", and the art is covered in intricate detail from the hand of Ferdinand Horvath. Fine condition.
