    Carl Barks - Uncle Scrooge Preliminary Sketch Original Art (Walt Disney, 1972). Uncle Scrooge peeks out from behind a curtain in this preliminary sketch, created for his 1973 painting known as "Blue Persia." This painting is one of several Barks did based on his comic book story "Donald Duck in Ancient Persia" (from Four Color #275, 1950). In the original image, it's the Mad Scientist who is behind the curtain, but for this commissioned piece, Uncle Scrooge was substituted. The art is in graphite over red pencil on onionskin paper; figure image size is 7" tall. The signed art is matted, with an opening of 8" x 10" and ornately framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 12.75" x 15.75". Very Good condition
