A painting by one of the most famous Walt Disney Studios artists of all time helped Heritage Auctions’ Dec. 9-10 Animation Art Auction in Beverly Hills, California clear more than $1.5 million, making it one of the most successful auctions ever for the department. The extraordinary return was the department’s seventh straight auction that totaled at least $1 million, and pushed its total for the year to nearly $3.7 million, establishing a new record for sales in a single year for the department.

“The animation art department has enjoyed its best year yet,” Heritage Auctions Director of Animation Jim Lentz said, “and this auction marked the perfect way to cap off the year. We were able to offer an incredible array of lots that brought out the most serious collectors of Walt Disney art and animation art in general.”

More than a dozen bidders pursued a Carl Barks “Family Portrait” Uncle Scrooge and Disney Ducks Painting #73-15 with Handwritten Letter (Walt Disney, 1973) until it finally hammered at $68,712.50. The entire Duck family “posed” for the legendary Disney artist, with Donald Duck surrounded by Uncle Scrooge McDuck (a Barks creation), Grandma Duck, Daisy Duck, Gladstone Gander, and in front, Donald’s nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie.

'The Third Nile,' Part 1 of 2! A McDuck quest into Egyptology for Scrooge, Donald, and Ludwig Von Drake gets hairier with the Beagle Boys hot on our heroes' trail-and prehistoric caveducks ready to pounce! • Continues this beloved series' legacy numbering at #427! • Thinking man's thinking man Ludwig Von Drake is back with Scrooge and the gang for another journey into insanity! (Hoo-hoo!)
