#573 - Carl Barks: A Christmas Trimming Signed Proof Set Estimate: $1,000+

Limited edition Progressive Proof miniature lithograph set for the Carl Barks oil painting 'A Christmas Trimming,' numbered PP 3, which includes 12 touchplate color prints and 11 ‘progressives’ for a total of 23 proofs, each measuring 11 x 13.5, 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 and marked “23. Final print with type, gold leaf and pearl dust.” The scene shows Xmas tree vendor Scrooge McDuck greedily demanding every last penny from Donald Duck and his nephews, Dewey, Huey, and Louie. The prints are housed in the original hand-crafted, foil-stamped, customized box. In fine condition.

Accompanied by a detailed certificate of authenticity, which states: “The process colors represent multiple exotic combinations of inks that were used with each mixture or laboratory blend and are 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 history of the making of the lithograph is built, step-by-step, by the addition of colors until the last progressive is printed. These proof sets show, layer upon layer, how the print looked at various stages of its production.”
