The trial of Prince Phillip in Sleeping Beauty

(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Terrific original concept storyboard painting by Eyvind Earle for Sleeping Beauty, portraying the brave Prince Phillip, armed with sword and shield and clad in his knight armor and cape, stalking the ruinous husk of Maleficent's castle during the film’s climax. The scene is achieved with harrowing effect and skill, with the ground glowing with an ominous red hue and the background a tortured row of arches and demented bulwark. Accomplished in gouache on 24.75 x 10 artist's board. Handsomely triple-matted and framed to an overall size of 33.75 x 19.25, with Earle signing in white paint in the lower right corner. 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.
