(Walt Disney Studios, 1955) Gorgeous original panoramic concept painting by Eyvind Earle for Lady and the Tramp, depicting the two dogs seated on a leaf-covered sidewalk not far from the home of Lady’s owners, Jim Dear and Darling. With rows of lush trees and yards speckled with brightly bloomed flower bushes, Earle beautifully captures the stately houses of New Haven, Connecticut, adding a distinct fading light to the romantic New England setting. Accomplished in tempera on 23.5 x 8.75 artist's board, signed in the lower right corner in paint, "Eyvind Earle." In fine condition, with tack holes to corners, and trivial wear to lower right edge. Disney artist Eyvind Earle, who later became Sleeping Beauty's production designer, created almost 50 miniature concept sketches for the 'Bella Notte' sequence and was a key contributor to the classic film. A simply brilliant original piece of Disney art.
