    Sleeping Beauty Two Castles Color Key Background Painting by Eyvind Earle (Walt Disney, 1959). Of all the artwork created from the hand of Eyvind Earle for this epic film, his paintings of both Maleficent's castle and King Stephan's castle are the most breathtaking. This is a rare primary background Color Key that displays both castles in one painting. Maleficent's Forbidden Castle is on the left while King Stephan's (later called Sleeping Beauty's Castle) is on the right. This is the first piece of Earle artwork we have ever seen with both castles shown. Large gouache on board painting, with a size of 25.5" x 9". Signed on the bottom right by Mr. Earle, who was a Disney Legend Inductee in 2015. Tack holes in all four corners (typical of Earle Disney paintings), with minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
