    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty Spinning Wheel Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). "But King Stephan, still fearful of his daughter's life, did then and there degree... that every spinning wheel in the Kingdom should be burned on that day. So it was done." Those interested in Disney/Eyvind Earle castle art, this is for you! It's a rare concept art/color key painting of spinning wheels burning in the Castle courtyard. It can be seen in the film around the 10:15 mark. It is an interesting study in color; a stunning painting of the castle courtyard, with an unusual mix of purple and orange. Painted in gouache on board measuring 12" x 7". Framed with Plexiglas and matted, with a mat opening of 13" x 8". The concept piece is hand-signed by Disney Legend Inductee Mr. Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000) in the bottom right corner. Fine condition.
