    Carl Barks - Original Watercolor Painting, "Go Slowly, Hands of Time" (Celestial Arts, 1981). A landmark volume from the legendary "Good Duck Artist," the publication of this book marked a new era of detente between Barks and Disney, who had forbidden the artist from illustrating any of their characters for several years. In addition to reprinting some classic Duck stories, the limited edition book also included a new story, "Go Slowly, Hands of Time," in which Scrooge McDuck becomes obsessed with his mortality and desperately searches for the Fountain of Youth. The exquisite watercolor presented here was part of that story. Framed to an overall size of approximately 20.5" x 22", with an image area of approximately 11" x 11", this is a superb piece, rich with warm, subtle tones, all contributing to an extremely pleasing composition. In excellent condition, the piece is signed by the artist in the lower left.
