Many modern artists have taken their inspiration from Walt Disney's creative venture. These artists use a variety of styles in their fairy tale art, including Romantic styling and modern pop art representations. Even the villain of the story, the evil Queen Maleficent has gained popularity among Sleeping Beauty art enthusiasts and is displayed in a variety of styles by different artists in their fantasy art.
In modern times, Sleeping Beauty illustrations are tremendously popular. They are often used in nurseries and rooms for little girls. However, as the generation that was raised on the Sleeping Beauty legend and Walt Disney's animated film grows older, these decorations are increasingly being used by older audiences.
