    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty "Birthday Cake" Color Key/Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). The Fairies wage a war on the color of the dress and Rose's sixteenth birthday cake, which would alert Maleficent's raven Diablo as to where they are hiding. Maleficent was just about to give up on finding Princess Aurora when she sent Diablo out to find them and told him to not disappoint her. This is a rare Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000) background color key/concept artwork of the three Fairies -- Fauna, Flora and Merryweather, in the cottage with the cake. It's possible this was done for the Big Little Golden Book project. Painted in gouache on board measuring 12" x 5.5". Signed in bottom right corner. Pinholes in corners, minor handling. In Very Good condition.
