    Sleeping Beauty "Briar Rose and Flora" Animation Production Cels with Eyvind Earle Painted Background Original Art (Walt Disney, 1959). The timeless tale of Sleeping Beauty was magically transformed into what many consider the last truly great animated feature film by the Walt Disney Studio, in 1959. Nothing was spared to make this lovely story come to life, and Disney utilized the best talents in the world to achieve the magnificently realized finished film. In this remarkable panoramic background and character cel presentation, Good Fairy Flora waves her magic wand over the beautiful Princess, in her disguise as Briar Rose. The incredibly detailed cottage interior background illustration has been signed in the lower corner by renown artist Eyvind Earle (1916-2000). The character cels have been meticulously trimmed and mounted onto a large layer of acetate, and the entire image area is a huge 25" x 12". The art has been professionally matted into an ornate frame, for an overall size of 38.25" x 26". The frame is lightly distressed and in Very Good condition, while the art is in Excellent condition.
