    Description

    Carl Barks Uncle Scrooge McDuck Preliminary Original Art (c. 1970s). Preeminent Donald Duck artist Barks is the creator of miserly Uncle Scrooge. Barks would put as much energy into his preparatory sketches as into the finished pages: "I work out the idea in my mind -- the theme, the composition, the colors," he once said, and he would follow through with rough-pencil sketches, detailed refinements, and then enlargement to a final size. With their spontaneous energy, Barks' sketches show the creative process in embryo and are highly prized amongst Donald Duck collectors. This signed pencil rough measures 7" x 6" and is in Excellent condition.
