DescriptionSnow White and the Seven Dwarfs (RKO, 1937). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A, Gustaf Tenggren Artwork.
This incredibly elusive style A half sheet, one of the most desirable posters on the title, features the artwork of legendary children's book/animator Gustaf Tenggren. It is Tenggren's work (out of some 570 artists that worked on the film!!) that distinguishes many of this Walt Disney classic film's finest moments, as seen here in this simply splendid illustration of Snow White fleeing the murderous huntsman. With a 19th Century style that draws directly from one of the most beloved of illustrators, Arthur Rackham, the eerily rendered trees almost seem to move on the poster. Display ready, the borders have been professional airbrushed to repair edge wear with several small tears and a few minor chips. There was a tear from the bottom border into Doc's face, and a tear from the top edge into the "W" of "White." The poster had practically no wear in the inset image, and the half sheet now looks fantastic after restoration including some color enhancement. Fine+ on Paper.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
