Carl Barks - Very good - 2 Original artwork - Professionally framed and matted, Signed, with certificate

Object: Original artwork (More lots)
No. of items: 2
Language: English
Series: Carl Barks, original watercolour + pencil prelim
Title: Sir Bruce
Year oldest item: 1978
Condition: Very good
Edition: First edition
Extras: Certificate, Professionally framed and matted, Signed
Artist: Carl Barks

Offered here is a beautiful set of original investment quality artwork by Carl Barks. The set consists of a pencil preliminary sketch on vellum paper and an almost finished watercolor on carboard. The pencil prelim is titled 'Sir Bruce' and both artworks are portraits of comic art collector and founder of Another Rainbow, Bruce Hamilton.
These works of art were made by Carl Barks around 1978 during which period Bruce owned a comic book shop called 'Camelot'. Sir Bruce's cactus helmet is also a reference to the fact that Bruce Hamilton came from Texas. These two artworks were discovered back in 2016 and come with full letter of authenticity from the Carl Barks Studio.
Both the pencil prelim and the watercolor are professionally framed to a total size of approx. 40 x 50 cm, respectively. The pencil prelim is titled and signed by Carl Barks and also features a lovely detail of some quite well-known ducks in Sir Bruce's shield.
The pencil prelim has a few spots in the top part of the drawing but is otherwise in very good condition. The watercolor is in excellent condition considering its age. Original art by Carl Barks is beyond rare and watercolours from this great master are almost never seen on the secondary market.

    Het schilderij is aangekomen met veel schade aan zowel het glas als aan de lijst. Het was slecht verpakt in karton. Geen bubbelrap. Contact opgenomen met de verkoper. Geen reactie ontvangen.

    What has happened here is an odd case of communication being sent on the CW platform from you but never received on my end. I have alerted CW to this issue and expect them to provide a good explanation for this. As agreed, I will send you a new frame next week.
