    Description

    Al Taliaferro - Donald Duck Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 3-23-38 (Walt Disney Enterprises, 1938). Cast your eyes upon the earliest Donald Duck daily original art known to exist! This strip, from the seventh week of the run, depicts Donald's efforts to keep an errant coin for himself, dropped from the pocket of a passerby, and the resulting situation he finds himself in when caught "with the goods." This lovely ink on board drawing measures 27" x 7", and has been visually enhanced by the addition of three-color film overlays, giving it a lush, full-color appearance. The art has been professionally matted and framed to an overall size of 31.74" x 12". The original was purchased by Bruce Hamilton directly from the Taliaferro estate in an early 1980s auction, and remained in his collection until now. In Excellent condition. From the Estate of Bruce Hamilton.
