Carl Barks Uncle Scrooge Creator Disney Original Art

Carl Barks is a Disney Legend and his work is collected and cherished throughout the world. Purple Persia was done in March,1997, and was one of Carl Barks's last works. The photos don't begin to do this justice. It's a Carl Barks original, unpublished, highly detailed, one of a kind, framed, boldly colored, comic book cover, pencil type paint, sketch from one of the duck's earliest adventures. T is an exceptional amount of warmth to these and the character's outlines give them the appearance of the original comic books.This is completely drawn and entirely done by Carl Barks. Purple Persia is based on a comic book cover from the 50's. Compare it to the original. You'll see the changes Carl made that are only in this drawing, which he obviously gave a lot of thought to. It is beautifully framed in a wood, gold frame, to museum quality, with acid free matting and plexiglass arranged by the Carl Barks Studio and the Walt Disney Company. It is from a smoke free environment and was never displayed in the sunlight. T is zero fadding.

The framed size is 20 3/4" wide by 23 1/2" tall. The image itself is 9 1/2" wide by 12 5/8" tall. It is such a perfect drawing! These were originally offered at auction at Carl Barks's birthday party. This is one of the most deluxe and exceptionally detailed ones that is entirely colored by Carl.
