An Eyvind Earle watercolor from “Sleeping Beauty”
1959, gouache on board, depicting Prince Phillip with sword in hand fighting his way through the brambles to get to the palace where the sleeping princess lies, signed lower right Eyvind Earle, matted and framed.

The Disney Studio hired Eyvind Earle in 1951. Within two years, he became the color stylist and inspirational artist for Sleeping Beauty. His artist style, one derived from medieval tapestry based on paintings by Durer and Breughal, had a large impact on the look of the characters and backgrounds in this film. Many of the artists working on this film thought his style was a bit austere, but Walt Disney thought otherwise.
