(Walt Disney Studios, 1955) Exquisite original concept painting by Eyvind Earle for Lady and the Tramp, which depicts the title canines walking together in Lady’s wealthy neighborhood. The elaborate, detailed background features rows of colorful trees and 'painted lady' Victorian homes, with the park, distant homes, and rounding street lending the scene impressive depth; this beautifully realized moment begins Lady and Tramp’s wonderful date that culminates in the romantic 'Bella Notte' sequence. Accomplished in tempera on 14.5 x 6 artist's board, signed in the lower right corner by Earle. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. 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.
