    Eyvind Earle Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle Princess Aurora's Cradle with 3 Good Fairies Concept Painting Original Art (Walt Disney, 1956). This one will knock your socks off when viewed in person - an incredible and HUGE published concept painting of Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, flying in tiny form to grant their magical gifts to the new princess, as seen through an open window in the castle's stone walls. The piece was created for the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle in Fantastyland, and it's from the hand of one of Disney's most revered and in-demand artists of the 1950s, Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000). It's a truly breath-taking beauty, befitting the title of the classic animated film on which the castle is based. The enormous size (the painting is matted with an opening of 21.25" x 16") made this an excellent candidate for an art print, and one was released in the 1990s, which was quickly sold out. This published original art is painted with gouache, and is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. The painting is framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 31.75" x 26.5" x 1". An exceptionally rare piece of Disneyland concept art by the hand of Eyvind Earle, the painting is dated 1956, and the frame bears a Walt Disney Imagineering sticker on the back. This remarkably rare piece was originally sold at Disneyland. This will surely be the centerpiece of any collection of Disney animation art, even a collection of Eyvind Earle original art... like we said, this one will knock your socks off! Frame is sold as-is; art condition is Fine.

    More Information: EDIT: This piece was created in 1956 for the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland, and it was original sold at Disneyland.
