    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty Maleficent and Castle Color Key/Concept Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). The magnificent art of Eyvind Earle hit a tremendous peak with his concept paintings for Disney's Sleeping Beauty. Here's a typically stunning piece, featuring Maleficent, her pet raven Diablo, and the ruins of the Forbidden Mountain castle, all under a hazy sun. Maleficent has a figure size of 4.25". The art is painted in gouache on board measuring 14.5" x 6", floating in a mat with an opening of 15.5" x 7". The art is framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 23.75" x 15". Slight curl to the artboard, with tack holes in all four corners and a tiny bit of wear to the corners. Fine condition. From The Forbes Collection.
