The Cowan Collection
To give us his own thoughts and back stories, Robert has started a blog of his own, Cowan Collection: Animation in which he highlights some of the amazing pieces. Todays goodies are some gorgeous Eyvind Earle paintings from Sleeping Beauty. I especially like that the blog and its creator do not pretend to be purely historically oriented, but also give an insight into collecting for the beauty of the art's sake, and this includes the very interesting choices that the Cowans have made as to the framing of the pieces. A Tenggren in a two-sided frame is something we should see more of, and the Just Mickey cell on a Haunted House background makes for a good conversation piece in any house, however historically misplaced.
The items posted range from historically interesting to absolutely beautiful, and make this blog worth visiting often - and adding to your RSS feeds. Remember to check the earliest postings, too!
