Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
As young boys growing up in Placerville, California, there were few things Thom and I loved more than going to our county’s sole drive-in movie theater. Truly, the Se Rancho Drive-In forever held a place in Thom’s heart and still holds one in mine. It was there that he and I first got to see all of the Disney Masterworks in animation. I have real and distinct memories of watching Pinocchio, 101 Dalmatians and The Jungle Book there, sitting next to my mother and brother, my eyes alight with interest. But the first film we saw at the Se Rancho, the one that started our family tradition was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This movie has been beloved by audiences since 1937. It was recognized at the eleventh Academy Awards as a pioneering achievement in filmmaking and Walt Disney received honorary Oscars, one full-sized and seven smaller versions, for his work.
Join us at the Thomas Kinkade Studios as we revisit this tale of an imperiled princess and her seven delightful and dedicated protectors. We worked hard to capture all of the major background elements of the film, from the Prince’s castle to the cozy cottage to the jeweled mine. Further, we poured ourselves into capturing the personalities of each of the Seven Dwarfs as well as portraying the Queen in the form of the Witch and Snow White herself. All added to the monumental complexity of the painted effort. Still, and without hesitation I can say that despite the number of artistic responsibilities, it was a joyous task to complete. For all those involved with the Thomas Kinkade Company, for my family and for Thom himself, I thank you all for sharing the light.

- Thomas Kinkade painted Snow White Discovers the Cottage in 2008 – his first painting in the Disney Dreams Collection. This magical image featured Snow White, but did not include the Seven Dwarfs. For many years, Thomas Kinkade Disney collectors have requested a painting dedicated to the beloved characters, and the Thomas Kinkade Studios pays homage to them in this masterwork: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
- Although, the story of Snow White was originally published as a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm in 1812, Walt Disney was the first to give the Seven Dwarfs names – Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy and Grumpy – in his 1937 animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
- To share his vision of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with his animators, Walt Disney acted out each role as he told the story.
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the first Thomas Kinkade Studios image painted from an inside perspective looking out.
- It is a busy day at the mine for the Seven Dwarfs, but each of their personalities shines through as they harvest the radiant gems. From Bashful’s fluttering eyelashes to Dopey’s playful grin as he embarks upon a mine cart adventure, the Thomas Kinkade Studios has captured iconic features of Snow White’s lovable companions.
- Look carefully for the evil Queen in the form of the Witch, spying on Snow White as she sweeps in front of the cottage.
- Beyond the enchanted forest lies a path that leads to the Prince’s beautiful palace.
