The Evil Queen (animation art cel) is the stepmother of Snow White. Once her magic mirror tells her that Snow White is fairer than she is, she immediately enlists her huntsman to kill her in the woods….and to bring Snow White’s heart back to her in this very box.
The dwarfs tried to protect Snow White like Grumpy shown in the animation art cel.
You can see a page of Grumpy here.
This Courvoisier animation art cel and background is the most desirable image of the greatest villain of all. Her name was given as Queen Grimhilde in some old publicity material and comics, but this is seldom acknowledged by the Walt Disney Company.
The Twisted Tale books gave her the name Queen Ingrid. She is sometimes referred to as the Wicked Queen, while theme parks sometimes refer to her as the Snow Queen (not to be confused with Queen Elsa). The Witch is sometimes referred to as the Old Hag after drinking the aging potion.
Animation art – In 1928, Steamboat Willie, featuring Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, popularized film with synchronized sound and put Walt Disney’s studio at the forefront of the animation industry. In 1932, Disney also introduced the innovation of full color (in Flowers and Trees) as part of a three-year-long exclusive deal with Technicolor.
The enormous success of Mickey Mouse is seen as the start of the golden age of American animation. That classic style and all work done by hand only would last until the 1960s. At that time hand inked cels gave way to inking being done by xerox. The golden age of animation was ending, but new computer technology would revolutionize the art in the future.
