Magical Landscapes by a Legend - Eyvind Earle (1916 – 2000, American artist)

Born in New York in 1916, Earle got his start in art at the young age of 10 when his father challenged him to choose between reading a 50 page book or painting a picture each day – showing early vigor, the young Earle chose to do both. Just 4 years later, at 14, he had his first solo show in France. Living his life in a bohemian fashion, he later bicycled across the US, from Hollywood to New York, paying his way with 42 watercolors. It was in that year, at age 21, that he began to move away from the realism that had dominated his work and on to the style we know him for today.

It was in 1937 that Earle’s career really took off: he opened a solo show in New York to a highly enthusiastic audience, and two years later sold out the same gallery. Then, in 1951 he joined Walt Disney studios as an assistant background painter. Impressed with his work, Disney put him on projects like Peter Pan, and Lady and the Tramp; but to see his work fully expressed, check out Sleeping Beauty, where he created the styling, backgrounds and colors for the entire film.
