(1916-2000) "A designer, painter and illustrator, Eyvind Earle was noted for backgrounds he created for Disney classic films such as Sleeping Beauty and Lady and the Tramp. He also designed popular greeting cards that utilized more than 500 of his paintings. In 1961, he established his own animation company, and continuously painted landscapes in oil and acrylic, using acrylic before 1971 and oil after that. His most famous paintings are of California mountains and valleys of western Canada.
Eyvind Earle created images where large geometric forms predominate. Trees are pressed flat against the foreground, and there are angular barns and receding curves on the horizon On these forms Earle imposed detail that was both realistic and decorative." taken from www.AskArt.com
