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.
The Frost Fairies sequence of Walt Disney’s Fantasia lasted only 37 seconds, yet in that time the exquisite sprites skated their way into our hearts. Imagine, if you could go back in time and acquire one of those legendary pieces of art. Now you can.
"Winter Magic" 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.
Each Courvoisier Miniature is created by master artists.
Cels are hand inked and painted from the original animation drawing used in the making of Fantasia.
Disney ink and paint colors, milled and matched to the original Disney formulas, are used for each cel.
Each Frost Fairy is drybrushed and her wings are airbrushed, exactly as they were in 1940 using Paasche airbrushes.
Each cel features a miniature animation punch. The punch and edition number are below the mat line. The number also appears on the reverse of the framed art and the Certificate of Authenticity.
The background is designed and prepared in the original Courvoisier technique.
Each cel is enclosed in an eco-friendly Nurre Caxton Deco-style frame and CyroAcrylite OP-3 acrylic glazing.
