THE BRAVE LITTLE TAILOR (1938)
Disney's THE BRAVE LITTLE TAILOR was likely in production near the end of SNOW WHITE. The studio's artistry was at full flower, as evidenced by these wonderful background pieces.
First, a reconstructed pan background of a castle interior:
Next, the interior of the giant's mouth. What a cavern!
The final image of a beautifully depicted well is on screen for mere seconds. This epitomizes the attention to detail that raised Disney animation to its peak. The subject is humble, and simple, but the painting is a lovely little masterpiece.
