Eyvind Earle (1916 – 2000, American artist)


“The passing of Eyvind Earle leaves a hollow place in the art world’s firmament. The artists who occupy a space all their own are few. He was one of that exclusive number. We can be thankful for his uniqueness, his visual poetry and the prolific blessings he left with us. Somewhere, there is a new start in the heavens now, shining with an Eyvind Earle brilliance.” - Jack Hines

Eyvind Earle was an American artist, author and illustrator, noted for his contribution to the background illustration and styling of Disney animated films in the 1950s. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Rahr West Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum and Arizona State University Art Museum have purchased Earle's works for their permanent collections. His works have also been shown in many one-man exhibitions throughout the world.
