    Carl Barks Far Out Safari Oil Painting Original Art (1975). "The composition and execution of this particular painting must have exceeded even the Duck Man's expectations," said the editor of The Fine Art of Walt Disney's Donald Duck, "It was so finely rendered and the colors so perfectly suited to its purpose, it lent itself to selection as the only mid-size oil to be reproduced in this book as a fold out (no reduction in size from the original)." This piece was reproduced as two color plates, 86 and 87, in the book.

    Uncle Scrooge seems in command of this African expedition, but it is the nephews and their Woodchucks Manual who save the day in this romp based on the 1966 cover of Uncle Scrooge #61.

    This rampaging oil on board painting has been indexed by Barks scholars as painting #98L (Barks identification number 7-75). It was used to illustrate the front and endpapers of several volumes of the Carl Barks Library of Uncle Scrooge.

    The image area of this savannah scenario measures 16" x 12", and it has been framed to an overall size of 20.5" x 16.5". The art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Carl Barks at the lower left. From the Kerby Confer Collection.
