She will soon meet the rabbits, the squirrels and other forest animals during this song. This is an original Eyvind Earle concept art/background Color Key painting of Briar Rose with her flower basket and the forest birds. Beautiful study of color, painted with gouache on illustration board measuring 14" x 6". This is one of Mr. Earle's more defined concept paintings of Briar Rose, with a nice 4" pose. Artwork is hand-signed by Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000) in bottom right corner. Matted with an overall size of 18" x 10", with a Plexiglas sheet attached with tape. Tack holes in corners, with minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
