Description

    Eyvind Earle (attributed)The Story of Christmas Painted Illustration (NBC/General Mills, 1963). The Story of Christmas was a TV special that premiered on NBC on 12/22/63, hosted by Tennessee Ernie Ford. It was the first hour-long Prime Time TV special to air with no commercials, and was sponsored by General Mills. There were eighteen and one-half animated minutes of this TV Special that were conceived, produced, and filmed by Eyvind Earle. This is a painting on canvas that looks to be a prototype for some promotional artwork for this film. Mary and Joseph with yellow halos showcase the style of Eyvind Earle. There is a faint EE in the bottom of the "Sleeping Beauty"-type castle they are walking in front of. The canvas is 24" x 30" and the artwork is unsigned. The painting is sold without provenance or artist known, but it appears to possibly be from the hand of Eyvind Earle. Minor handling; Very Good condition.
