(Walt Disney Studios, 1937) Original production cel featuring the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, showing the villain flipping through a book of potions. The cel has been trimmed to image and applied to an airbrushed background as prepared by the Disney Studio to be sold at the Courvoisier Galleries. Image measures 7.5 x 7, with a mat opening of 8 x 9.5. This piece is also framed to an overall size of 20 x 21.5. In fine condition, with a chip to a corner of the frame. This image is from the scene when the Evil Queen is in her potions room and looking through her red ‘disguises’ book in order to change her appearance to that of the old witch to trick Snow White into taking the poison apple—this cel depicts the exact moment that she is deciding which spell to use for the task. A magnificent piece from this historically important animated feature.
