    Description

    Eyvind Earle The Story of Easter Concept Art (1963). After 7 years with Disney, background artist Eyvind Earle went on to form his own animation studio. After doing some major TV commercial work he animated The Story of Christmas in conjunction with Tennessee Ernie Ford. This ratings hit ran on December 22, 1963 and was sponsored by General Mills. A sequel was proposed to be called The Story of Easter, but this project never got the green light. This is an amazing original concept artwork for that proposed project. Painted by the hand of Eyvind Earle (1916 -2000), this is gouache on board measuring 20" x 30". The painting depicts Jesus in a crowd setting. Unsigned. Minor handling and edge wear with some surface dirt; otherwise in Very Good condition.
