Snow White at the wishing well, with gorgeous background art by Toby Bluth

(Walt Disney Studios, 1937) Beautiful original production cel of Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, depicting the young princess leaning over a well during the memorable 'I'm Wishing' sequence, the first song featured in the movie, and by extension, the first in the animated canon. The cel has been expertly trimmed and applied to a gorgeous matching watercolor background by Toby Bluth, whose mastery in background artwork can be viewed in the first five feature-length films released by Walt Disney Studios, a list that also includes Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi. The Snow White cel measures 5 x 5.5, with a mat opening of 11.5 x 8.5, and the entire work is triple-matted and sealed under Plexiglas to an overall size of 17.25 x 14.25. In fine condition. A remarkable presentation that captures in delightful fashion one of Disney's most influential and memorable moments.
