Eyvind Earle | Walt Disney illustrator

Eyvind Earle (April 26, 1916 - July 20, 2000) 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.

Earle was critically acclaimed by such publications as Time, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The New York World-Telegram, The Art News and The New York Sun.
Earle's work and distinct graphic styling has continued to inspire new generations of artists and animators, serving to influence the look of other animated films.
These have included the Disney features Pocahontas and Frozen, as well as the graphic style of Sony's first computer animated film, Open Season.
The Banner Saga, a video game by developers Stoic, draws heavily from Earle's style and contains a character named after him. He is credited for 'Artistic Inspiration'.
In May 2017 The Walt Disney Family Museum hosted an 8-month original retrospective exhibit: Awaking Beauty: The Art of Eyvind Earle.

  • In 1998, Earle was honored at the 26th Annie Awards with the Winsor McCay Award for a lifetime achievement in the art of animation.
  • In 2015, in a presentation at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, Earle was inducted as a Disney Legend.
