    Description

    Carl Barks The Wadfather Painting CB-OIL 21 Original Art (1972). Also known as Barks Code #6-72, this piece features Uncle Scrooge and Gladstone Gander, along with Donald Duck and the Nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Scrooge's Money Vault is seen in the background as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Of course, the title humorously alludes to Mario Puzo's 1969 novel The Godfather (or the Francis Ford Coppola 1972 film of the same name). Created in oil on 20" x 16" masonite, and signed in the lower right. It is open front framed in a 27.5" x 23.5" wooden frame. In Excellent condition.
