    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty Briar Rose Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). "I wonder, I wonder, I wonder why each little bird has someone to sing sweet things to..." Briar Rose leaves the Woodcutter's Cottage with her flower basket and walks into the forest. She first meets the forest birds as she vocalizes to "I Wonder." 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.
