In order to preserve the artistry and charm of the original Ellenshaw paintings, Walt Disney Art Classics chose to produce the limited edition prints using the fine art reproduction process of giclée. This fine art process was developed to create the closest possible reproduction of the original artwork. After converting the original art to a digital file, artists working closely with Peter perfect the colors using the original painting as a reference. The recreated artwork is then directly printed onto acid-free, museum-quality paper or canvas under the supervision of the artisans.
For over thirty years, Peter Ellenshaw brought his movie-making artistry to the films of Walt Disney. Peter was the master of matte painting in its simplest form, a special effect whereby an object or landscape--a castle, a ship, an island--is painted on glass and set in front of the camera so that both the real setting and the painting are filmed as one. Born in England, Peter Ellenshaw learned the art of matte painting for the from the film artist who perfected it, W. Percy Day, O.B.E. Starting in 1934, Peter worked for seven years as Day's Assistant.
After painting on mattes for such British films as Shape of Things to Come and Thief of Bagdad, Peter started painting mattes for Walt Disney, beginning with Disney's first all-live action picture, Treasure Island (1950). It was the start of a professional and personal relationship with alt Disney that was to span nearly three decades. In 1954, Ellenshaw created the first full-color painting envisioning Disneyland® Park.
He also brought his artistry to such Disney classics as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), Darby O'Gill and the Little People (1959), Mary Poppins (1964) and Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971). Ellenshaw won an Academy Award® for special effects for his work on Mary Poppins. Also, his non-film work has gained him a worldwide reputation among fine-art connoisseurs as an extraordinary artist with a unique vision.
