Yes, but first I have to show off some knowledge. :-) The watercolor is 
titled "Geography's Founders" (80-02). It's part of Barks's extensive 
series "Famous Figures of History as They Might Have Looked Had Their 
Genes Gotten Mixed with Waterfowl".  (153kb)
Scan is submitted by Gerd Syllwasschy, 21 December 2001.
It's taken from Barks's Animal Quackers paintings book.

On his BarksBase site, Gerd has a splendid overview of Barks's 
non-Disney watercolors:
