    Description

    Carl Barks Carl Barks Library Volume VIII Cover Preliminary Original Art (Another Rainbow, 1983). Uncle Scrooge can't resist spying a stray dime while he and his nephews Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie pose for a Disneyland portrait in this hand-colored preliminary sketch. This was the design chosen to be used as the slipcover illustration on the first released boxed set of hardcover comic reprints issued by Another Rainbow in the 1980s and '90s. It appears that Barks photocopied his pencil sketch and added watercolor and marker for this preliminary, which has an image area of approximately 7.5" x 10", matted and framed to an overall 12.75" x 15.25". In Excellent condition.
