Courvoisier made history in 1937 when they introduced artwork from Walt Disney’s "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" to the world, and gave us Disney’s legacy of the finest animation art ever sold. The art was prepared by a special unit at the Disney studio in set-ups with distinctive custom backgrounds and presented in hand-lettered mats finished with the "WDP Original" logo seal. Some of the finest pieces of vintage animation art ever seen originated in the historic Courvoisier program.
Mickey Mouse, the world’s most beloved and recognizable character, appears in an ideal image from the Oscar-nominated 1938 short as he tells the King how he slew seven at one blow—and winds up Royal High Killer of the Giant. "The Brave Little Tailor" was one of the most expensive and elaborate Mickey cartoons ever produced, and was certainly one of his finest appearances.
"A Brave Tale" continues our promise to deliver Disney’s fabled artistry to your art collection at a price that will allow you to look forward to each new edition in the series.
