Walt Disney films and their roots in European Fine Art
An exhibition showing the links between Walt Disney's films and European Art has recently opened in Munich’s Hypo-Kunsthalle.
Many people still recall the fairytales of their childhood: Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Robin Hood. Few will actually remember reading the book or even listening to those stories while sitting on their father‘s lap. It’s more likely they watched one of Disney’s world famous movies. There are many choices that have to be made before a movie tells its story in a certain way. And there are also various artistic influences and references that give the story depth.
