    Description

    Carl Barks The Lemonade King Illustration Preliminary Sketch Original Art (Whitman, 1960). Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge are featured in this two-page layout for the children's storybook. Barks roughed out this sketch for artist Norm McGary to use, to create the painted illustrations featured in the published book. It should be noted that this was the first Disney project to actually give Mr. Barks a credit line; before this, he toiled away as the anonymous "Good Duck Artist," never signing his name. This layout was rendered in blue pencil on vellum, and it has been matted to an image area of 16" x 9", then glass front framed to 27" x 19.5". Signed by Barks at the lower right. Some paper aging; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
