Disney, The Art of Storytelling

Walt Disney was always interested in drawing, a passion which he maintained whilst serving for the United States in the First World War. After the war, the artist moved to Hollywood along with his brother, Roy, to found an animation studio. Since the premiere of Steamboat Willie in 1928, the first animated cartoon with synchronised image and sound, Disney has become one of the world’s most powerful empires and an icon of popular culture.

This exhibition is made up of a wide variety of drawings, watercolours, digital prints, storyboards and fragments of production notes that explain the process of adapting classic stories to cartoons.
