1936 Snow White 'Shoe in Stew Pot' Concept Art

Currently up for auctions at Hake's is this original Snow White full color concept art, circa 1936. Lead pencil and watercolor on a 5.5" x 7.75" artboard image area. From the online description:
Wonderful scene of a shocked Snow White lifting one of the Dwarfs shoes out of a stew pot. This was from the sequence where she begins to clean the Dwarfs' cottage. She is surrounded by a number of forest animals including squirrels, chipmunks and bluebirds, all of whom look just as shocked as her.

Of special note, bluebirds rest on handle of pick-axe driven into table's surface. Any fully finished Snow White color art such as this is exceedingly rare. Superb design and detail.

The auction ends tomorrow at 12:00 PM EDT. Special thanks to William Stillman for letting us know about this one.


  1. What an amazing piece! I wish I had the dough to collect stuff like this.
