Archive: Grim Natwick Exhibit

Grim Natwick

Grim NatwickGrim NatwickGrim Natwick is undoubtedly one of the most influential animators who ever lived. His career spanned the entire history of animation- from its earliest days in New York to Richard Williams' Cobbler and the Thief in recent times. Grim worked at many of the major studios- Hearst, Fleicher, Iwerks, Disney, Lantz, UPA, Jay Ward, Melendez and Richard WIlliams. He animated in every style, but was able to maintain his own personal flavor, regardless of whether he was animating for modern studios like UPA or cartoony ones like Fleischer. If one had to define the single element that set his animation apart, it would have to be that his characters always seemed to have a genuine spark of life.

The ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive is pleased to present an exhibit of artwork from Grim's personal files. Stop by the archive anytime during regular hours (Tues-Fri 1pm-9pm) to view the exhibit.
