(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Stunning original concept painting by Eyvind Earle for Sleeping Beauty, which depicts in vibrant detail the film’s iconic castle from high atop the countryside. From the perspective of a distant observer, the castle and the surrounding land with lush trees, winding river, and mountainous silhouettes combine beautifully as an engrossing fairy tale vista, with the immense white castle and its multitude of spires captured brilliantly against the clear blue sky. Accomplished in gouache on 24.5 x 9.75 artist's board, signed in the lower right corner by Earle. Attractively mounted and framed to an overall size of 28 x 13.5. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. Accompanied by a limited edition 29.5 x 12.75 artist's proof giclee of this image, numbered AP 1/20. An amazing original piece of Eyvind Earle's artwork, which was chosen by Disney to release as a limited edition. Portraying the castle as it is seen for the first time when they come through the wood, it is one of Earle's most famous paintings.
