    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty Briar Rose Concept/Color Key Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). "No I can't believe it, no. But I promised to meet him!" says Briar Rose to the three Good Fairies. She is told, "I'm sorry child, but you can never see him." This is the dialogue for the dramatic words to Briar Rose where she finds out her true identity within the cottage in the forest, right before her sixteenth birthday. She does not know the man she met in the forest was the Prince who she was promised to at birth! This is an outstanding original character study/background Color Key of Briar Rose in her bed at the Woodcutter's Cottage. It is one of the more detailed paintings rendered from the hand of Disney Legend and Art Stylist on this film, Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000). Gouache on illustration board measuring 22" x 9.5". Hand-signed by Eyvind Earle in bottom right corner. Tack holes in all four corners and minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
