Carl Barks – Another Rainbow Gold Plate Artist Proof AP-6 to “Till Death Do Us Part”
1983, Another Rainbow, this is the third print to the series and the very first Gold Plate edition for the series, lithograph printing on paper, signed by the artist in pencil on the lower right margin; and noted by the artist in pencil at AP 6/6 on the lower right margin, interestingly enough this print does not contain the printed title to the middle lower margin, it could be that publisher Bruce Hamilton had a shortage of prints with the title intact, and when it came time to pull the six artist proofs he had to resort to extra printed editions without the title imprint! We will never know for sure but this is certainly a very rare print, with its certificate of authenticity attached in its original envelope to the backside, and a sticker with Barks handwritten note "Property of Heirs," also attached to the back frame. Image size is 20 x 16, condition is Excellent, double matted and framed. An extremely rare print offered in an artist proof for the very first time for public sale by the estate.
