Description:
Carl Barks Donald Duck Sheriff of Bullet Valley Oil Painting Original Art (1973). This richly hued shootout scene was based on Carl Barks' own 1948 Donald Duck Four Color #199 tale, "The Sheriff of Bullet Valley." As all fans know by now, Carl Barks was the genius behind the creation of "Scrooge McDuck," the world's richest duck, and was known for many years as the "good duck artist" who drew the comic book adventures of Donald Duck, his nephews, and Uncle Scrooge in the 1940s-1960s.
This oil on board painting has been indexed with a Barks number #2-73 (and by Barks scholars as painting #41 P1973) and it saw print as color plate #122 in The Fine Art of Walt Disney's Donald Duck by Carl Barks, published in 1981. This 14" x 18" oil on Masonite painting has been framed to an overall size of 19.5" x 23.5", and this iconic masterpiece is in Excellent condition. From the Kerby Confer Collection.

Barks, Carl:Carl Barks (American, 1901-2000): For the Disney Duck-loving world, it was Carl Barks who exploited the globe-trotting adventures of the Disney Ducks to their fullest, with nearly 500 stories to his credit. His colorful cast of creations includes Scrooge McDuck, Gladstone Gander, Gyro Gearloose , the Junior Woodchucks, the Beagle Boys, Magica De Spell, and Flintheart Glomgold. After Barks eased into his retirement from his heavy workload at Western Publishing, he supplemented his income with oil paintings sold at local art shows. Early subjects included humorous scenes of life on the farm and portraits of Native American princesses. After a few comic book fan/detectives discovered that Barks was the "Good Duck Artist," they commissioned Disney Duck scenes based on Barks' most memorable stories. The popularity and value of these paintings has grown enormously ever since. In 2000, the beloved "Good Duck Artist" died at age 99, only a few months shy of his 100th birthday..
