    Eyvind Earle Concept/Color Key Painting Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1959). "Joyfully now to our princess we come, bringing gifts and all good wishes, too. We pledge our loyalty anew. Hail to the Princess Aurora!" By the hand of Disney Legend Eyvind Earle (1916-2000), this is a spectacular set of two original early character design studies of the titular sleeping beauty, Princess Aurora. Hand-painted in gouache on 11" x 5" illustration boards, these stunning and ethereal images likely inspired the visuals of the dream-like scenes in which the fairies bestow gifts upon Princess Aurora. Perhaps more so than any other Disney film, Sleeping Beauty's distinct color and styling is owed greatly to its masterful concept artist. These are spectacular full-figure images featuring one Disney's most iconic princesses. Capturing the character's elegance and poise, these marvelous pieces show minor handling and edge wear, and the condition is Very Good.
