    Al Hirschfeld Carl Barks Caricature Illustration Original Art (1999). Two legendary masters of pen-and-ink meet in this rarely seen caricature of Carl Barks, the celebrated "good duck artist," by the master of the fine-line portrait, Al Hirschfeld. Hirschfeld drew some of the country's most famous caricatures over three-fourths of a century, including Broadway and Hollywood stars, politicians and world leaders, and his original drawings command big prices whenever they make their way to the marketplace. The then 96-year-old legend depicted a 99 year-old legend, Carl Barks, shown sketching Donald Duck and his three nephews. The ink on board piece has an image area of 15" x 15", and has been matted and framed to an overall size of 20.5" x 28". From the Estate of Bruce Hamilton.
