    Description

    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty Dragon in Flight Concept/Color Key Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). "NO! It cannot be! Now you shall deal with me Oh Prince... and all the powers from hell!" These are the words of Maleficent after she watches Prince Phillip, with the aid of the three Good Fairies, continue on with his rescue efforts! He rides his horse Samson through the thorn trees Maleficent has grown, with his Sword of Truth and his Shield of Virtue. Maleficent counters his advance by turning herself into a fire-breathing dragon. This is an outstanding Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000) original concept/Color Key painting of Maleficent as a Dragon soaring over her castle. Rare to have Dragon concept art with both thorns and castle within the painting -- this is a wow image if there ever was one! Gouache on illustration board measuring 21" x 8.5". This is a large Earle concept paining! Tack holes in all four corners, with minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
