Treaures on Canvas

Disney Fine Art celebrates 15 years of magic with James Coleman

After over twenty years with Walt Disney Feature Animation creating backgrounds for films such as “Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, Too”, “The Fox and the Hound”, “The Great Mouse Detective”, “The Black Cauldron”, and “The Little Mermaid”, just to name a few, James Coleman began his love affair with the fine art world in earnest. This transition helped to launch James on a wonderful, fifteen year journey creating impeccable works of Disney Fine Art. All of us at Collectors Editions, publishers of James Coleman’s Disney portfolio, are overjoyed with this long and loving partnership, and feel that this milestone is very much deserving of a Disney Fine Art style celebration!

LIMITED EDITION JUNE RELEASE



"Waiting for Dopey"

Waiting for Dopey 24x18

Limited Edition of 195 | Hand-Embellished Giclée on Canvas  | 24 x 18  | SRP $795

With his skilled hand, James Coleman transports us to the land of Snow White and her seven new friends in this wonderful work of art. By focusing the sun’s breaking rays through the canopy of trees, Mr. Coleman is able to draw our attention to the dwarfs as they march along a fallen log in what is now one of the most iconic moments in film history. From here, our eyes are allowed to wander over the lush, forest landscape until we ultimately land on Snow White, and watch as she gives Dopey a sweet, nurturing kiss. One does not create a painting like this in an hour, or even a week. Because, to truly create a work of such beauty and grace, takes a lifetime.
