Description

Beautiful panoramic concept of Sleeping Beauty’s forest cottage

(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Stunning original concept painting by Eyvind Earle featuring the cottage from Sleeping Beauty where Briar Rose lives with her fairy godmothers deep in the forest. Accomplished in tempera on 24 x 8.5 artist’s board and signed in the lower right corner by Earle. 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.
