    Carl Barks - "Disputed Claim" Oil Painting Original Art (circa 1976).
    Carl Barks based "Disputed Claim" on a dramatic showdown taken from his 1953 Uncle Scrooge yarn in Four Color #456. In that classic duck tale, "Back to the Klondike," the adventure began when Uncle Scrooge swallowed a handful of "memory pills." Almost immediately, Scrooge recalled a bag of gold nuggets that he had cached in the Yukon fifty years earlier. When the Duck clan returns to the Klondike to claim Scrooge's prize, they discover that Scrooge's claim has been jumped by Glittering Goldie. Scrooge had met the former dance hall girl during his early Gold Rush days. This glowing oil on canvasboard painting has been indexed by Barks scholars as painting #120P. The image area of this magnificent milestone measures 16" x 22", and the art is in Excellent condition. This painting was signed by Carl Barks at the lower left.
