(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Remarkable original concept painting by Eyvind Earle for Sleeping Beauty, which depicts in mesmerizing detail the film’s iconic castle from high atop the countryside. From the perspective of a distant observer emerging from a forest, the castle and the surrounding town and farmland combine beautifully as an engrossing fairy tale vista, with the immense white castle and its flag-tipped towers captured brilliantly against the bright blue sky. Accomplished in tempera on 14 x 6.25 artist's board, signed in the lower right corner by Earle. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners and a small area of paper loss to upper left corner.
