    Carl Barks Wanderers of Wonderlands Painting Original Art (1981). This gorgeous oil painting of Scrooge and the boys examining the riches found amidst ancient ruins (while various Beagle Boys, Harpies, and Magica De Spell watch on), is one of the most important Duck paintings Barks ever produced.

    Upon his retirement, Barks had asked for and received permission to produce a series of paintings based on his covers and stories. After a fan issued a few prints of Barks paintings without Disney's permission, Carl lost his rights to the Ducks, and it took the urging of several notable megafans to get them to reverse that decision. This piece was his first done after Disney relented, and was used as an exclusive print included in the deluxe book, Uncle Scrooge McDuck: His Life and Times. That book is considered a breakthrough of its kind, and was reviewed by Time and Newsweek.

    The painting is a true treasure, filled with rich detail and sumptuous color. The image area measures approximately 15.5" x 19.5" on canvasboard, beautifully displayed in an ornate gold frame. The art is in Excellent condition, and will surely be the crowning piece to any serious Barks collection.
