Eyvind Earle was an American artist, author and illustrator, who began painting when he was 10 years old and had his first solo show in France when he was 14. The fine artist and printmaker produced distinctive interpretations of iconic American landscapes. He was already a well-established artist when he joined the staff at Walt Disney Productions in 1951 and was the lead stylist for the film, Sleeping Beauty. He also designed over 800 greeting cards for the American artist Group and continued to create independently after leaving Disney Studios. In 1966 he returned to full-time painting.
