The Art Behind the Disney Princesses (x)
There are two images in this graphic that are a teensy bit misleading:
1) The second image in the Snow White section is an illustration by Trina Schart Hyman. Ms. Hyman’s art could not have influenced the film because she was not even born until 2 years after the movie was released.
2) The third image in the Cinderella section is an illustration by Kinuko Y. Craft. The book this illustration is featured in was not published until 2000, so it could not have influenced the style of the film.
Bonus interesting info related to The Princess and the Frog: the animation style featured during “Almost There” as well as the art on the magazine cut-out given to Tiana by her father are inspired by Aaron Douglas, a major figure of the Harlem Renaissance.
I’m not trying to nit-pick the maker of this graphic too much, but it is really important for illustrators to get proper attribution for their work so that people can seek them out if they like what they see.
