Walt Disney (1901 - 1966)
Popular culture and highbrow culture typically ignore one another and the links between them have seldom been explored. Walt Disney’s feature-length animated films, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, until The Jungle Book in 1967, are striking examples of reciprocal influence of these two cultures. Taking this approach, the exhibition brings together original drawings from the Disney studios and the works and creations of Western art which inspired them.
After Paris, Once Upon a Time, Walt Disney will travel to the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Montréal, where it will be on view from 8 March to 24 June 2007.
