T o celebrate Mickey Mouse’s forthcoming 90th anniversary, this weekend Sotheby’s has seven rarely seen, vintage Mickey Mouse film posters on display at Disney’s ‘Mickey’s UK Art Collective Exhibition’ in Shoreditch, London.
The original posters include four from the 1930s, and three from the 1940s and 1950s, giving fans a nostalgic look back at the life and legacy of Mickey Mouse.
Spanning the first half of the 20th century and dating as far back as Mickey’s eighth birthday (1936), the original posters have rarely been exhibited in public and are among the few examples that have survived. Following the public exhibition, the works will be up for sale in an exclusive online auction running from 16-26 November.
As well as these historic pieces, the exhibition will also showcase brand new Mickey-inspired works by 12 established and emerging UK artists, including Jimmy C, Michael Bosanko, Ashton Attzs, and Pal Kumar.
