Description

(Walt Disney Studios, 1953) Beautiful original concept painting of a Native American village by Eyvind Earle for Peter Pan. The scene depicts the Neverland tribe’s quarters at the edge of a cliff: a trail leading to a small cluster of tipis and an eagle-shaped totem pole, a pinkened sky with the rising sun and gusts of wind, and a foreground of spindly, pointed treetops. The result is a distant and simplistic view of the Indian homestead, characterized by its calmness and inviting colors, the start of a new day in Neverland. Accomplished in tempera on an 8 x 6 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. Provenance: Howard Lowery.
