Cinderella (Aschenputtel) - Lotte Reiniger (1922) from http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com
The history of animation can be traced to the silhouettes of Lotte Reiniger.
The shadow can show mood, and often expresses more than a figure with
details. Walt Disney was especially fond of the silhouettes by Reiniger. She
would sit for hours, weeks, days, years to make a cartoon, moving her paper
cuttings and taking a photo of them. Much of the world thinks that Lotte
Reiniger invented movie cartoons. http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com
