(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Original concept storyboard painting by Eyvind Earle featuring Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty, showing the valiant prince inside Maleficent's castle, his sword drawn and red cape fluttering behind him. Accomplished in tempera on 15 x 6 artist's board. Beautifully cloth-matted and framed to an overall size of 21.5 x 12. In fine condition. Disney artist 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. A superlative, very early rendering of Sleeping Beauty's hero by the renowned Disney artist, executed in exquisite detail.
