Description

The Wayward Canary (United Artists, 1932). One Sheet (28" X 41").
Playful, charming, and beautifully illustrated, this rare poster depicts two of Walt Disney's most beloved characters, Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Wayward Canary was released in November of 1932, the same year that the Academy awarded Disney a special Oscar for his creation of a nationwide phenomenon, Mickey Mouse. Disney left Columbia earlier that year, as they were unwilling to raise production costs for the series above $13,500 per short. After all, the country was in the depths of the Depression. Disney signed with UA and thus began in August 1932, for poster collectors, the "Golden Age" of Mickey Mouse posters. The UA posters are full color and often stone litho, as is this one sheet. There were only twelve individual one sheets created for the United Artist-Mickey Mouse cartoons before the studio shifted over to "stock" posters, making paper from these gems extremely scarce, and the ultimate find for Disney collectors. There are only three known copies of this poster extant and one of those resides in the Disney Archives. And this may be the best copy of the three as the piece displays exceptionally well after professional minor restoration addressed small tears in the credits, very minor fold wear, two tiny holes in the bottom right and a chip in the bottom border. This poster is a beautiful example of the lithographers art and is a major "cross-over" for collectors of posters, Disneyana, Animation and Americana. Very Fine on Linen.
