Peter Goddard of the Toronto Star tells us about Disney art on display in Paris and will later be displayed in Montreal.
The people most enthralled around me at the exhibition were not the kids, but their parents and grandparents — the original Mouseketeers.
As the Palais show also proves, the distinct Disney touch — that definitive visual drawing style and cast of characters — clearly belongs to the studio’s glory days more than 50 years ago. That was before the Disney empire, founded in 1923, began to expand beyond its core animation business into weekly TV shows, live-action movies and theme parks.
The article points out the inspiration Disney’s artists had in European art. It sounds like a very interesting exhibit. I hope it comes closer to California.
