    Description

    Carl Barks - "Sexy Women" Illustration Original Art (Calgary Eye Opener, 1934). This is one of Carl Barks' most appealing Art Deco works. The two sexy ladies both have garments that don't quite cover "sensitive" areas! Note the Art Deco nude art hanging on the wall of the bedroom filled with furniture that would be considered antique today. Barks' inking is exquisite in this piece. Inked works by Barks are rare today; the majority of his Duck pages were burned by Western Publishing after photography (the common practice of the day), with fewer that 125 inked pages surviving. This piece, filled with beautiful cross-hatching lines, has an image area of approximately 9" x 13", and is in Excellent condition.
