Original art

Original art

The market for Don Rosa’s original art has exploded in recent years and the huge demand has led to his original sketches and inked pages today being virtually unobtainable. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that Gallery Disneyana+ now is able offer a small but solid selection of some of Don Rosa’s preliminary pencil sketches. The sketches are of a high quality, and they give a good insight into Don Rosa’s work process. These are beautiful and raw artworks with a high investment-grade value. 

Cover study – A Cold Bargain

Richly detailed cover study for Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge: A Cold Bargain. Used in Gladstone Comic Album Series #24 published in 1989. A beautiful Don Rosa cover for a true Carl Barks classic. The artwork is in beautiful condition and measures approx. 28 x 22 cm. Professionally matted to a total size of 50 x 40 cm.

Hand-signed by Don Rosa in the upper right corner.

Preliminary study – Hall of Fame

This original preliminary pencil study was created for the Hall of Fame book series released in Scandinavia and Germany. This original art page measures approx. 20 x 28 cm. and features Scrooge, Donald, HD&L and Mickey Mouse. Especially the latter makes this artwork extra special as Rosa rarely portrays Mickey as positively as he has done here. As a fun bonus, this prelim sketch also includes some notes concerning the three main characters’ posture with Donald being smug, Scrooge being suspicious and Mickey featuring mindless euphoria (as always!).
The drawing is overall in good condition with some minor spotting/smudges, however, none of these affect any of the ducks or mice in the artwork.
