Disney is an animation empire, an iconic aesthetic that's survived and improved over generations, and proof that animated drawing is art, no matter how you define it. Setting aside legends of the genius that was Walt Disney (that he was a Nazi, that his body was cryogenically frozen, that his works contained secret pornographic messages...), what is clear is that his name is worth millions, and his talent as well. This exhibition at the CaixaForum shows the passion Disney had for illustration and the art of storytelling through animation. From the premiere of 'Steamboat Willie' in 1928, featuring the first animated drawings with synchronized image and sound, Disney has become one of the most powerful empires in the world and an icon of popular culture. With 'The art of storytelling' you can see a great variety of drawings, watercolours, digital prints, storyboards, and fragments of production notes that explain the process of adapting classic stories to animation. Pure joy for Disney fans of all ages.
