    Description

    Eyvind Earle Sleeping Beauty Signed Color Key/Background (Walt Disney, 1959). In the great book by Didier Ghez They Drew As The Pleased - The Hidden Art of Disney's Mid -Century Era, he quotes Walt Peregoy on page 179, "Eyvind Earle was stylist (on Sleeping Beauty). He set the styles, and background artists followed avidly, completely, his direction and style. A background painter has to adapt himself and his talent, to whatever degree, to totally mimicking the style of the background artist. The world in which this film took place was Eyvind Earle's." This is an outstanding oversized background Color Key/background concept painting of Maleficent standing at the gates of her Forbidden Castle. The color styling, and image are striking. Gouache on board of 27" x 8". This concept art piece, showcases the world in which Eyvind Earle vividly created for this stunning film. The level of detail to the castle with the subtle image of Maleficent at the gate entrance is amazing. Hand-signed on bottom right corner by Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000). Minor handling and edge wear, and pinholes in corners. Very Good condition.
