ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR from 1964 by Tasha Tudor. The piece displays her illustrative talent, knowledge of antiques, love of flowers and her humor.

The image is of a Fourth of July mishap on the piazza of the Peterkin's house from Tasha Tudor's Favorite Stories (1965). The story is by Lucretia P. Hale "The Peterkins Celebrate the Fourth of July," pages 75-85. Two women and Solomon John jump back in horror as an explosive discharges in front of them and sends another boy backwards into a flower bed. Mrs. Peterkin is startled off her rocker on the porch. Two children look across the porch from inside the house. A cat scampers away from the mad scene.

The art remains in its original French mat as Tudor would have received it from her favored Boston frame shop. The blue watercolor of the mat has faded over time. The wood frame is gilt, sculpted with gray and charcoal highlights. There is slight separation of the top corners.

Tasha Tudor & Bethany Tudor

Tasha Tudor is the long honored 20th century American illustrator who revealed her New England heritage in just about every painting she created. She was one member of a talented family, channeling the artistic abilities of her portraitist mother. 2015 will be her centenary year with special exhibitions. Watch this page for developing details.

Tudor illustrated dozens of favorite books. Many had her own text relating images and events from her own life. She painted hundreds of Christmas cards, and many of these recorded familiar scenes in New Hampshire and Vermont. Her life and work is recorded in scores of magazine articles. The major Tasha Tudor archives are owned by the DeGrummond Children's Literature Collection, University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg.

Cellar Door Books is a small specialty book shop devoted to Tasha Tudor. We have her books, art prints, Christmas cards and many other things created by this talented artist. We sell her original art, some pieces consigned and some our own. And we can help you dispose of your Tudor art. There is no count of the number of pieces Tudor created in her lifetime. We calculate in the neighborhood of 15,000 original watercolors, oils and drawings in pencil and chalk.

John and Jill Hare are the proprietors of Cellar Door Books founded in 1971. We are also the compilers and authors of two comprehensive reviews of Tudorís art: Tasha Tudor: the Direction of Her Dreams (1998) describes some 1200 books associated with Tudor; and Christmas Card Designs of Tasha Tudor (2012) describes and pictures the majority of the 1400 Christmas and other greeting cards Tudor painted.
