Description:
Carl Barks McDuck of Duckburg Painting Original Art (1974). Offered here is the opulent and ultimate iconic portrait of Uncle Scrooge McDuck, the richest duck in the world. This is the first of two paintings with a similar motif, the other being The Money Lender. The detail here is simply astounding -- just admire all the glittering gems and lustrous coins -- the colors are lush and beautiful. The piece is featured as color plate #60 of The Fine Art of Walt Disney's Donald Duck.
The art, numbered #15-74, is painted on Masonite, measures approximately 14" x 18", and is handsomely framed to an overall size of 24" x 28". It 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..
