“Still Life with Teapot” – Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip and Cogsworth from “Beauty and the Beast” (1991) During the early-20th-century, artists along the Riviera were exploring ways to make still life objects come to life on a flat canvas. Artists would first break the objects into individual shapes and forms, then accentuate each object with strong outlines. Inspired by the cubist style of art, Disney artists painted the enchanted objects from “Beauty and the Beast” (1991) – Cogsworth, Lumiere, Chip and Mrs. Potts – as they appear to come to life on the canvas.

“Girl with Lanterns” – Panel showcasing Rapunzel from “Tangled” (2010) The dramatic hues of sunset inspired Disney artists in painting Rapunzel and Pascal as they watch the glowing lanterns illuminate the evening sky, creating a delightful pattern of shape and color.

“The Seaside Nap” – Mickey Mouse and Pluto. Harkening back to Disney’s cartoon origins, this coastal Riviera scene is styled to reflect the vintage characteristics of early black and white cartoon art.
