    Eyvind Earle The Shadow of Maleficent Sleeping Beauty Diorama Disneyland Painting (Walt Disney, 1959). After completing almost seven years of work on Sleeping Beauty, Walt Disney commissioned Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000) for a series of paintings to be used in Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle Diorama. This is a stunning Eyvind Earle original for the diorama. Art is in gouache on board, in a frame of 21" x 29.5", under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 11.5" x 19.5". The original Art Data Sheet sticker is affixed to the back of the frame. Frame sold as-is. In this piece Maleficent is seen through a window in the stone walls of the castle as Princess Aurora lies on the ground. This is a key scene in the film. The painting was initially sold at the Disney Gallery above Pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland. The art is hand-signed by Disney Legend Inductee, Eyvind Earle. This is a rare opportunity to add a unique piece of original Eyvind Earle artwork to your collection. Fine condition.
