Walt Disney wonderful world and it roots in European art

This week I had the pleasure to go to Munique and see some exhibitions. However I would like to point out one that impressed me more: the wald Disney wonderful world and it roots in European art.

When I first knew this show I thought it would be a bit boring with all movies and drawing that we know since we were child. However I was delighted by an amazing surprise. The exhibition was extremely nicely done with an interesting design, but what is the best in this show was the explanation about some of Disney’s references.

 The references go from “Nosferato” in fantasia to “The cabinet of Dr. Caligari” in some Mickey Mouse’s short movies. From ancient Chinese painting in Bambi to a castle named Neuschwanstein in Germany in Cinderela.

Even thought these nice information the hight point of this exhibition is an unpredictable collaboration between the surrealist artist Salvador Dali and Walt Disney. In 1946 Daly was in Disney’s studios and produced a short movie called “Destino” that was finished only in 2003 and presented in this exhibition.

It is a nice exhibition that will make you look in a different way to Disney’s movies. If you have the chance do not miss.
