"Hansel and Gretel" ORIGINAL ART FROM TASHA TUDOR'S BEDTIME BOOK



#25511

"Hansel and Gretel" ORIGINAL ART FROM TASHA TUDOR'S BEDTIME BOOK ill. Tasha Tudor. 11 5/8 " x 9 ". Signed in pencil atop the paint in the lower right corner. .

Full page watercolor to illustrate the short story and printed as page [28] in Tasha Tudor's Bedtime Book, Platt & Munk, 1977. Unmounted piece of watercolor paper measuring 11 5/8 " x 9 ". The 10 1/8" x 8" image is fully reproduced in the book but in a milky sort of view. The vivid detail that Tudor painted in lost in the reproduction. The central image has the two timid children standing before the witch and her house made of bread. The picture contrasts the dark: the hag, two vultures, a snake in the grass, bones on the ground; with items much more familiar to Tudor: bees buzzing about poppies, morning glories climbing the cottage and a rain barrel standing at the corner. A shadow of one of the vultures is poorly painted on the ground. Tudor painted a dewey spider's web in the lower left corner. Signed in pencil atop the paint in the lower right corner. There is residual gum around the back edges from mounting adhesive tape; and a penciled $50.00 on the back.
