    Lady and the Tramp Dear Family House Concept Painting by Eyvind Earle (Walt Disney, 1955). "Oh dear, I should have been home long ago!" says Lady to Tramp after the wake-up from their Bella Notte evening. This is an outstanding concept Color Key painting of Lady and Tramp in front of Lady's home. Lady and Tramp are right in front of the house by the bottom of the stairs. Eyvind Earle did a great deal of work on the Bella Notte scene and time together after dinner. He did both concept Color Key paintings as well as production backgrounds for this film. This early concept Color Key painting is hand-signed by Earle (1916-2000) in the bottom right corner. Mr. Earle was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2015. In 2017, the Walt Disney Family Museum put on an eight month art retrospective titled "Awakening Beauty: The Art of Eyvind Earle." This concept painting is in gouache on illustration board measuring 15" x 13". It's a stunning painting with his signature look to the landscaping aspects of this piece. One of the larger concept paintings from Earle's hand, for this film, that we have ever seen. Tack holes in the corners, and minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
