Eyvind Earle

Eyvind Earle (1916-2000) is best known for his artistic contributions to Disney films in the 1950s; in fact he is a Disney Legend™, a designation the existence of which I had not suspected until this week. The work over which he had the most control was Sleeping Beauty. But before he worked for Disney he was a young modernist who had a solo New York show in 1937 that led to one of his paintings being purchased by the Met, and afterwards he painted these lovely works. (Land of the Midnight Sun, 1983) 

Backgrounds from Sleeping Beauty.

And more works of the 1980s-1990s
