#570 - Carl Barks: Halloween in Duckburg Signed Proof Set Estimate: $1,500+

Limited edition Progressive Proof lithograph set for the Carl Barks oil painting 'Halloween in Duckburg,' numbered PP 1, which contains a total of 31 prints, each measuring 27 x 22, that have been numbered sequentially as to their on-press progression. The final plate is of the finished product: a Gold Plate Edition variant that is signed in the lower border in pencil by Barks. The harrowing Halloween scene shows Donald Duck opening his door to an array of ghastly trick-or-treaters, which includes Huey, Dewie, and Louie, Witch Hazel, and other ghouls and creatures. The prints are housed in the original hand-crafted, foil-stamped, customized box, which includes an oversize 8.5 x 11.5 full-color comic book reprint of ‘Trick or Treat’ on quality paper. In fine condition. 'Halloween in Duckburg,’ the nineteenth Carl Barks lithograph in a series produced by Another Rainbow Publishing, is an updated take on his front cover to the comic book Donald Duck #26, released in November 1953, which featured the lead story, ‘Trick or Treat.’

Accompanied by a detailed certificate of authenticity, which states: “The ‘process’ colors and touchplates represent multiple exotic combinations of ink that were used and each mixture or laboratory blend is individually identified. In some cases a plate or ‘color’ may have been run through the press a second or third time with different intensities of ink to achieve a desired effect. As an artist’s painting is incomplete until the last brush of color is added, the step-by-step history of the making of the lithograph is built by the addition of colors until the last progressive is printed. The owner of each proof can see—layer upon layer—how the print looked at any stage of its production.”
