    Description

    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty Large Concept Art/Background Color Key Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). "No! It cannot be! Now shall you deal with me, oh Prince -- and all the powers of hell!" These are the words of Maleficent after she watches Prince Phillip, with the aid of the three Good Fairies, hack his way through the forest of thorns with his "Sword of Truth." She then turns herself into the fire-breathing dragon. This is an absolutely breathtaking background color key/concept painting of Maleficent as the Dragon, from the film's finale. It's a large gouache on board painting measuring 22" x 9.5", hand-signed by Disney Legend Inductee Mr. Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000), in the bottom right corner. Minor handling; pinholes in the corners. Very Good condition.
