(Walt Disney, 1959) Original conceptual design painting accomplished in tempera on board measuring 10 in. x 24 in., and depicting the Fairies’ Cottage, animals grazing and the three good fairies, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather. The visual design of Sleeping Beauty was largely the result of the artistic vision and work of Eyvind Earle (1916-2000). Earle joined Disney’s background department in 1951 and after serving as a background painter on the shorts and features of the early- to mid-1950s, he became one of the Studios’ key stylists. When Walt Disney saw pictures of the famed Unicorn Tapestries, he knew that was the look he wanted for Sleeping Beauty – and he knew Earle could give it to him. Signed at the lower right, “Eyvind Earle.” Pinholes at the corners; otherwise, Fine condition. An incredible original pre-production piece of art from this classic film. Housed in a custom archival frame and display measuring 19 in. x 33 in.
