(Disneyland, 1957) An original concept painting by Eyvind Earle for the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough attraction. When Walt Disney asked his Imagineers to find a creative use for empty space within Sleeping Beauty Castle, they settled on a walkthrough featuring dioramas that would tell the story of Sleeping Beauty, which was currently still in production at the studio. Walt reached out to Eyvind Earle, background artist and color stylist for the feature film, and Earle created a series of color concept paintings of potential scenes. These scenes were created as though the viewer was looking through a window. This stunning original painting is one of Earle's concepts for the walkthrough. The painting measures an impressive 9.25"x21". It is accomplished in gouache on art board and has been signed by Earle at the lower right. This piece is an amazing artifact of Disney Studio and Disneyland history.
