(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Beautiful original concept painting by Eyvind Earle featuring the climactic battle scene between Maleficent and Prince Phillip, signed in the lower right corner in paint, "Eyvind Earle." Accomplished in tempera on 15 x 6.75 artist's board. In fine condition, with typical tack holes to corners. Eyvind Earle was Sleeping Beauty's production designer, and Disney gave him a significant amount of freedom in designing the settings and selecting colors for the film. Earle also painted the majority of the backgrounds himself, and his stylistic influence is readily apparent in the final product. An action-packed original painting by true Disney master.
