His only instruction came from watching his father paint, Eyvind Earle is virtually self-taught. From the time of his first one-man showing in France when he was 14, Mr. Earle's fame had grown steadily. At the age of 21 he opened at the Charles Morgan Galleries, his first of many one-man shows in New York. In 1951 Eyvind Earle joined Walt Disney Studios as the assistant background painter.
Within two years he was promoted to color stylist and was responsible for the styling, background and color for the highly acclaimed movie, Sleeping Beauty. After a successful period of operating his own animation and motion picture company, Eyvind Earle resumed painting full time.
The artist has worked in a variety of mediums including the watercolor, tempera acrylic, scratch board, and silkscreen. His earliest work was strictly realistic, but after having studied the work of a variety of masters such as Van Gogh, Cezanne, Rockwell Kent and Georgia O'Keefe, Earle, by the age of 21, came into his own unique style. Eyvind Earle has a totally original perception of landscape.
He successfully synthesizes seemingly incongruent aspects into a singularly distinctive style: a style which is at once mysterious, primitive, disciplined, moody, and nostalgic. He at once captures the grandeur and simplicity of the American countryside, and represents these glimpses of the American scene with a direct lyric ardor. His landscapes are remarkable for their suggestion of distances, land masses and weather moods. Within the continental United States. If outside the continental USA.
