Description

Mini panorama by Eyvind Earle, beautifully capturing Briar Rose's longing glance at King Stefan's Castle

(Walt Disney Studios, 1959) Wondrous original mini panorama concept painting by Eyvind Earle for Sleeping Beauty, brilliantly showing Briar Rose looking back at King Stefan's beautiful castle while out picking berries in the forest. The castle gleams in the distance, with every window and colorful spire meticulously rendered by Earle's masterful hand. Earle's stylish flora enhances the scene, from a thick tree trunk dominating the left half of the painting to the vertically-oriented ferns dotting the landscape. Accomplished in gouache on 13.5 x 6 artist's board, signed in the lower right corner in silver paint, "Eyvind Earle." In fine condition, with tack holes to corners.

Legendary 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.
