    Lady and the Tramp Background Color Key by Eyvind Earle (Walt Disney, 1955). The "Bella Notte" full moon shines bright in this nighttime scene. With Mary Blair departing the studio, Eyvind Earle was recruited to this film. He did over 50 background Color Keys and production backgrounds for this film's most memorable scene, "Bella Notte." This is a rare Eyvind Earle hand-painted background Color Key/concept art painting of Lady and Tramp in the park at night, under the full moon. They finish their dinner at Tony's and head into the park to continue their romantic evening. Eyvind Earle (1916 - 2000) was a Disney Legend Inductee in 2015. This piece is in gouache on board measuring 12" x 6". His signature tree style is on display here. An amazing palette of color with purple blended in under the moonlight night. Nice images of Lady and Tramp on the right of the painting. Mr. Earle has hand-signed the artwork in the bottom right corner. Tack holes in corners, minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
