    Description

    Carl Barks - Uncle Scrooge "Money Bin Shower" Sketch Original Art (undated). This amazing scene reveals more of the top-secret and private goings-on in Uncle Scrooge's fabled money bin. "Money Bin Shower" was a full-color preliminary study for a painting that was never executed. Carl Barks told a collector that he couldn't resist coloring this design to establish a color-key for the proposed painting. The cascade of greenback paper money and waterfall of coins and jewels atop Uncle Scrooge's head has him in a giddy state of ecstasy as Donald Duck and Huey, Dewey, and Louie look on. The drawing was rendered in mixed-media - in pencil, ink, and Pentel pens. This is an event that the larcenous Beagle Boys often dream of interrupting, by pulling the plug on the money bin! The image area is 16" x 20". The piece is in Excellent condition, and Carl Barks has signed the drawing twice, once in his traditional block printing, and also in cursive. Jump in and bid, the "water's fine!"
