I'll sneak in here to say what I think about this matter. I'm no "fine art"
expert, I think that Barks' oils are pretty nice, and that's enough for me.
Had I the money (lots and lots) and had to choose between a Picasso and a
Barks (repeat: LOTS. So much money that I wouldn't be interested in resell)
I'd certainly choose a Barks... but for what's behind the oil itself, that is
the story that inspired it.
