Welcome to Courvoisier Galleries®. If you are new to collecting animation art you have probably heard the name Courvoisier applied to certain pieces of older art. If you are a veteran collector you already know Courvoisier stands for some of the finest vintage animation art available today. But no matter what your collecting experience, there is a great deal to learn about this unique and historic program, which introduced thousands of pieces of the very best Disney animation art ever seen to the world. Much of the vintage animation art in collections today exists solely because of Courvoisier, and much of the way we think of animation art is because of the way Courvoisier presented it.
