Kings and Queens of Myth and Legend
In 1976 Barks began a series of opulently rendered oil paintings portraying mythic monarchs.
»King Midas Having Fun«
»Old King Cole«
»King Neptune«
»King Beowulf«
A late follow-up to the series which was inspired by the current dragon hype.
»Queen of Sheba«
Barks never finished this painting. Probably he began it already in 1977.
