    Carl Barks "Square Eggs" (aka "Lost In The Andes") Painting CB -OIL 52 Original Art and Correspondence Group of 3 (1973). Referred to by Barks collectors as both #13-73 and "CB-OIL 52", this was the second of two oil paintings Barks produced that were inspired by his 1949 cover for Four Color #223. The surreal beauty was produced in oil on 16" x 20" pressboard and is signed in the lower right. The reverse side identifies it by the number #13-73 and the title "Square Eggs". There is a slight discoloration/stain of some type in the top center edge; however, it is hardly noticeable. There are minor frame marks on the outer most eighth-of-an-inch. You will be as excited as Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, if you win this fantastic painting! It is in overall Very Good/Excellent condition. Also included is a personal letter from Barks to the person who originally purchased this painting. The letter includes a color slide Barks produced to show the progress on this piece.
