(Walt Disney Studios, 1955) Brilliant original panorama concept storyboard painting by Eyvind Earle from Lady and the Tramp, showing Lady and Tramp walking the sidewalk in front of Tony’s Restaurant at the start of the iconic 'Bella Notte' sequence. With the soft light from the interior of the restaurant serving as a focal point, the nighttime scene is rich with an abundance of detail that paints a serene downtown filled with lamplight, rows of trees, and automobiles and horse-drawn buggies. Accomplished in gouache on 21 x 9.25 artist's board, signed in the lower right corner in black paint 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. An amazingly detailed panoramic view.
