Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has always been one of Disney’s amazing classic movies. Visually, it is a stunning masterpiece, and historically, it is one of Disney’s cornerstone movies.
Recently, the Snow White Discovers the Cottage Thomas Kinkade Serigraph Edition was released.
In Thomas Kinkade’s hands, “Snow White Discovers the Cottage” is just as stunning, and even more amazing. The painting is a masterpiece that lovingly shows Snow White as she happens upon the dwarfs’ home in the forest.
Accompanied by a beautiful little deer and three little rabbits, Snow White is featured in the lower left corner of the painting. You can imagine her surprise as she wandered through the forest and found this winsome and welcoming little cottage. The path she walks upon is a clean dirt path, leading her to a small bridge that spans a beautiful little stream. Can’t you hear the water babbling as it rolls over the rocks and down the waterfall?
Marvel at the amazing detail in the painting’s depiction of the flowers and bushes surrounding the cottage. Do you see the sun’s light filtering through the tall tree branches? That is classic Kinkade detail, and it is on full display in this painting. The cottage itself is a welcoming site, with its bright windows spilling light from within, and its clean thatched roof. The prince’s castle is visible in the background, high and regal above the forest. Do you see the other deer, and the squirrel across the stream? Kinkade was certain to remind you of Snow White’s love of nature, and how she was at peace with it. Gorgeous flora and fauna are the trademarks of every Disney movie, and Kinkade certainly made this painting a visual wonderland for any collector and fan of the Disney series.
Said Kinkade about the painting: “‘Snow White Discovers the Cottage’ is the first work in a series celebrating the classic Disney moments I cherished as a child. I hope it will be a fairy tale come true for Disney and Kinkade collectors everywhere.”
Kinkade also credits Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs for awakening his love of cottages: “As a seven-year-old boy, I purchased a matinee ticket and stared in wide-eyed wonder at the magical world of Walt Disney’s classic film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I was especially charmed with the whimsical woodland cottage that housed the seven dwarfs — it was as though my fascination with cottages suddenly was awakened!
“It wasn’t until I traveled to England and the rest of Europe in my early twenties that I discovered that such dwellings actually exist in the real world. For me, the charms of the old world are akin to the fairy tale magic I first discovered in the early Disney features.”
It’s hard to imagine how much this painting meant to Kinkade himself when he painted it. What a special piece to add to any collector’s home.
