All those color key paintings by Eyvind Earle for Disney's Sleeping Beauty are breathtaking. Simple, strong composition that emphasize the design and mood for individual scenes from the film.
Earle signed most of his work, but not always.
There are plenty of fake Earle design paintings (along with Mary Blair) offered at various auctions these days, but the ones shown here are the real thing.
The Walt Disney Family Museum is about to open a huge exhibition featuring Eyvind Earle's art.
Paintings from his work at Disney as well as his personal art will be on display. For more information go here:
