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. The show includes some 300 to 350 pieces: original works by Disney studio artists selected from the Disney archives and from private collections together with paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, film clips and other items.
