(c. 1920s) Original painting most likely for a children’s book by Gustaf Tenggren. Tenggren was a well-known book illustrator in the 1920s, and was hired by the Walt Disney company in 1936 to work on Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. Tenggren gave Snow White the “Old World” look that Disney was looking for in his first feature-length film. He later worked on Bambi and Pinocchio, as well as several shorts including the groundbreaking The Old Mill. This painting depicting Red Riding Hood and the Wolf measures 11 in. x 11 ½ in. and is signed in the lower left corner.
