    Gustaf Tenggren Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Illustration Original Art (Good Housekeeping, 1937). The coming of Walt Disney's first feature-length animated film resulted in a change in format for Good Housekeeping's usual monthly illustrated Disney feature. Instead of a cute rhyme with Tom Wood providing comic illustrations, GH enlisted the help of screenwriter Dorothy Ann Blank, who told the complete Snow White story in prose, alongside wonderfully detailed drawings by the great children's book illustrator, Gustaf Tenggren. Here is the illustration featuring the Seven Dwarfs, returning from a hard day's work to find a light on in their humble cottage. The linework is extremely fine and the color rich and sumptuous. The odd shape of the panel is how the art was presented, as seen in page 145 of the lavish coffee table book, Mickey and the Gang. The art has an approximate image size of 9.5" x 10", and has been professionally matted and Plexiglas-framed to an overall size of 20" x 20.5". It's in Excellent condition. Tenggren's early Disney art is eagerly sought after, so don't let this masterpiece march past you without placing a bid! From an Important California Collection.
