    Eyvind Earle Lady and the Tramp Concept Art/Background Color Key (Walt Disney, 1955). "Hey, Tony's! Of course... the very place for a very special occasion! No, this way, Pidge. I have my own private entrance" says Tramp to Lady as he leads her to the back of Tony's Ristorante, for what will become one of the most romantic scenes ever featured in an animated film. This is a fantastic original concept/background color key painting of Lady and Tramp peering through the open door into Tony's kitchen; the light shining through the door, the purple brick walls, and stylized wooden barrel showcase the artistic genius of Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000). Mr. Earle was part of the team of background artists that also included Claude Coats, Thelma Witmer, Ralph Hulett, and Al Dempster, to name but a few. This piece is painted in gouache on illustration board measuring 13" x 6", signed in the lower right corner. Tack holes are in all four corners; overall condition is Fine.
