Wonderful Eyvind Earle concept painting of Sleeping Beauty's hilltop castle
(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Magnificent original concept painting by Eyvind Earle for Sleeping Beauty, in which the film’s iconic castle is seen from the perspective of a distant observer emerging from a forest. Tree trunks thick and thin dominate the darker foreground, and the shining white castle appears almost floating on the distant hilltop against a pink sky. Accomplished in gouache on 12.5 x 6 artist's board, and signed in the lower right corner in purple paint, "Eyvind Earle." In fine condition, with tack holes to corners. A stylish, detailed fairy tale painting by Earle with his trademark flora and marvelous use of space and color.
