Disney Art Edition Serigraphs

This is really something special. The Disney Art Edition serigraphs are the only reproductions, which Carl Barks produced in direct collaboration with the Walt Disney Studios. The three serigraphs are the largest and most detailed and colourful pieces of Barks art ever printed. They are made with so many hand-applied layers of colour that they resemble the original oil paintings. The images alone are enough to make art lovers and Disney fans feel fuzzy; but in a good way.

The serigraphs are popular both in terms of artistic value, collectability and for investment purposes.

The Golden Fleece

To this day, the series of Disney Art Edition serigraphs rank as some of the best and most lavish fine art silkscreen prints ever created.  The Golden Fleece is the first in this series and was released in 1993. With a total of 96 hand-applied colors, the depth of this masterpiece is second only to Barks’ original oil paintings. The Golden Fleece is a masterpiece in its own right and is one of the finest images ever created by Barks. The exclusive print has an image area of 30 x 60 cm and is framed in the original Disney licensed frame to a total size of 95 x 65 cm. This gold frame with white mat and inner golden border is so exquisite that it actually served as inspiration for the Gallery Disneyana+ gold frame used for the gold plate edition Carl Barks lithographs we offer. With this frame, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful or elaborate work of art to hang on your wall. A stunning piece in a stunning frame and of course accompanied by the original certificate of authenticity.


Surprise Party at Memory Pond

This massive 80-color serigraph was made in celebration of Donald Duck’s 60th birthday. “As he approaches Memory Pond, Donald is ambushed by a throng of familiar faces shouting ‘Happy Birthday.’ To make the surprise extra special, Gyro Gearloose has invented a remote-controlled ‘Donald Duck’ as he appeared in the ‘Little Wise Hen’ — the feisty fowl’s first animated short.” This lavist study in green is a must-have in any serious Disney art collection. This gem is numbered 393/500 and hand-signed by Carl Barks. It has been professionally framed in a special custom version of the gallery’s patented framing solution featuring museum quality glass, a black mat and a golden inner border to a total size of approx. 80 x 90 cm.


Golden Fleece – deluxe edition artist’s proof

If you are looking for a true Disney treasure and/or high investment-grade art then look no further!

This is without a doubt one of the most exclusive limited editions ever produced under Carl Barks’ auspices. This is the first of three silk screen prints (serigraphs) released in the exclusive Disney Art Edition and was produced in collaboration between the Walt Disney Corp. and Moross Studios in 1993.

This is a stunning reproduction print of Barks’ 1972 painting titled “Golden Fleece” and the quality is higher than anything else ever released as a limited edition Disney print outside the Disney Art Edition. This print was made using hand-done colour separations incorporating a staggering 96 colours!

Golden Fleece ranks as one of Barks’ masterpieces in its own right but there are other factors that make this deluxe edition print stand out from the crowd:

  • This was the first and only time that one of Barks’ images was printed on wood rather than paper and the end-result was beyond impressive to say the least!
  • The deluxe limited edition of Golden Fleece became extremely rare and sought after even before it was released, as about half of the edition was destroyed in a flood – so of the initial edition totalling 65 units (50 deluxe editions, 10 PP and 5 AP) less than 40 remain in existence today.
  • The print offered here is one of just 5 special proofs (APs) given to Carl Barks of which this is numbered AP 3/5. It was thus part of his personal collection before it was sold to an American high-end collector sometime in 1995-1996. When it comes to provenance this does not get any better and the 5 artist’s proofs constitute the rarest and most sought after of all the 65 (40!) deluxe editions and rarely – if ever – surface for sale on the secondary market.

This deluxe edition print is hand-signed and numbered by Carl Barks and housed in the original wooden frame featuring a gilded border insert. The framed artwork measures approx. 60 x 90 cm and is in mint condition and accompanied by the original CoA.

The Golden Fleece serigraph is a must-have in any serious Carl Barks collection and this is a unique chance to own the absolutely rarest of the rarest version of this serigraph with the best provenance and moreover in the 100% original frame and in the best condition imaginable.
