Description
The films produced by Disney Animation Studios are deeply rooted in European storytelling and visual traditions. Exploring Walt Disney's fascination with European art and examining the novel use of French motifs in Disney films and theme parks, this publication features 40 works of eighteenth-century European design--from tapestries and furniture to Boulle clocks and Sevres porcelain alongside 150 film stills, drawings, and other works on paper from the Walt Disney Animation Studio Library and Walt Disney Archives. The text connects these seemingly disparate art forms through the artists' shared dedication to craftsmanship while also highlighting references to European art in Disney films, including nods to Gothic Revival architecture in Cinderella (1950); bejeweled, medieval manuscripts in Sleeping Beauty (1959); and Rococo-inspired furnishings and objects brought to life in Beauty and the Beast (1991).
