Eyvind Earle, "Santa Fe Trail"

Description

To match the original painting, the serigraphy process of "Santa Fe Trail" took layers and layers of transparent and color and much longer to perfect than almost any of his other editions. The final product is a breathtaking piece with an immense amount of depth. The shadows of each curve in the mountainside and precision in the tiny details create a magic that draws the viewer into Eyvind`s world. "Santa Fe Trail" was printed in June of 2000, just one month before Eyvind passed.

Born in 1916, Eyvind Earle began his prolific career at the young age of 10. His dedication to the arts was inspired by his father, who challenged Eyvind to either read 50 pages of a book or to paint a picture every day. Eyvind chose both. His first solo show was at the age of 14 and gained him instant attention. At the age of 21, he rode a bicycle cross-country, from California to New York. During this trip he continued to paint regularly and was able to sell 42 watercolors along the way. To conclude this trip, Eyvind ended with a solo show at the Charles Morgan gallery in New York. Just two years later, another solo show completely sold out and as a result, the Metropolitan Museum of Art purchased one of his paintings for their permanent collection. In 1951, Earle began work at what he considered "the greatest art school in the whole world," Walt Disney Studios. There he worked as a background painter, designing and creating the backgrounds for iconic animated films such as "Sleeping Beauty." Earle`s imaginative and illustrative style has captured the hearts of admirers around the world. With a 70 year long legacy that involves painting, writing poetry, and innovating the art of serigraphy, Earle has eternally made his mark in the art world.
