    Walt Disney Studios - Sleeping Beauty Children's Book Preliminary Illustration Original Art (circa 1959). Valiant Prince Phillip battles Maleficent, in her guise as a fire-breathing dragon, in this thrilling graphite pencil on vellum drawing. This illustration was most likely done as a preliminary study for a children's book illustration. The art captures the beauty and power of Disney designer Eyvind Earle's vision for "Sleeping Beauty". The film remains one of the most beautiful of the Disney features. The image area of the drawing is 8.5" x 16". There are a few folds, creases, and tears in the vellum; otherwise the art is in Good condition. This is a sensational tableau of the battle between good and evil!
