Immerse yourself in the lush landscapes and enchanting illustrations of Eyvind Earle, in the artists’ first-ever comprehensive museum retrospective. Featuring more than 250 works, this exhibition spans Earle’s prolific career, ranging from intricate thumbnail concept paintings for Lady and the Tramp to evocative large-scale background concept artworks for Sleeping Beauty.
Beyond his work at The Walt Disney Studios, Earle’s distinctive style and interpretation of iconic American landscapes as a fine artist and printmaker have inspired generations of artists and designers.
This extensive exhibition will feature original artworks from the full spectrum of his dynamic career alongside unique scratchboards, rare examples of his sculpture, companion poetry, and commercial illustrations.
The exhibition, which premieres at The Walt Disney Family Museum on May 18, 2017, is co-curated by Michael Labrie, Director of Collections and Exhibitions for The Walt Disney Family Foundation and The Walt Disney Family Museum, and Ioan Szasz, CEO of Eyvind Earle Publishing.
