Art Brokerage: Courvoisier Disney Cels: In 1937, Courvoisier Galleries gave Disney animation art the magic touch it needed to be considered fine art. It was no longer seen as pictures for a child's room. With the help of the Courvoisiers and their marketing know-how, Disney art had climbed the fine art ladder to become welcome additions to museums, galleries, and public and private collections worldwide. What made the artwork Courvoisier sold so unique was the style and manner in which the Disney Studios artists prepared it. The special backgrounds drawn and painted and the unique and interesting materials employed in its preparation showed the character images off to their best advantage. At that time, too, the Art Deco style was new and fresh and its influence can be seen in almost every piece of artwork prepared at Disney for sale through Courvoisier Galleries.
