A RARE DOLL MADE BY TASHA TUDOR IS FOR SALE DOLL MADE IN 1978 FOR PAMELA SAMPSON

KATHARINE KNOWLTON SEEKS HOME

We are most pleased to introduce you to Miss Katharine Knowlton in her blue dress with castleated hem and jet buttons. She is ready to travel to new lodgings.

Tasha Tudor and her collaborator Linda Allen made this doll in 1978 for their friend the artist Pamela Sampson. Tudor and Sampson met while visiting an exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and became fast friends. There is a photograph of Mrs. Sampson in Drawn from New England (page 78), Bethany Tudor's brief story of her mother's life.

Kate Knowlton was a part of the Tasha Tudor centennial exhibition staged by the de Grummond Children's Literature Collection in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Oct. – Dec. 2015. Katharine is quoted in The LETTER (Winter 1983) 33 years earlier, "Sometimes I’m invited to museums and exhibitions." There really weren’t any invitations after 2000.

Now we are honored to bring Katharine to the world market. She was recently appraised at $60,000 as an unique "sculptural creation," the work of Tasha Tudor, one of the country's preeminent illustrators.

We stand ready to effect a transfer of title of this exquisite creation by Tasha Tudor. Contact us for specific details concerning a purchase.

Welcome to the World of Tasha Tudor

Tasha Tudor & Bethany Tudor

Tasha Tudor (1915-2008) was a multifaceted artist. She illustrated children's books of her own creation as well as such classics as Mother Goose, The Secret Garden and Fairy Tales from Hans Christian Andersen. She toured to talk about her art and her lifestyle. She was revered for her knowledge of flowers: she knew how to grow them, she knew how to paint them. Dolls and 19th century costume were important topics to Tudor. Wander through our web store to see images of her books, Christmas cards, paper dolls, and many fine art prints. As Tasha was fond of quoting .... Take Joy!

Tasha (Burgess) Tudor was born in Boston, MA, in 1915, the daughter of an artist and an engineer. She lived in Connecticut for the first third of her life. Her first book Pumpkin Moonshine (1938) came from those years. She averaged more than a book a year. The family moved to Webster, NH, in 1945 where Tudor spent her most productive years producing many books, other creative projects, and hundreds of Christmas cards with nostalgic New England scenes. Tasha Tudor moved to Marlboro, VT, in 1971. She continued to paint and write more books. She was a partner in three businesses after her 75th birthday. She died at home in 2008.

Some books about Tudor and her art are: Drawn from New England, The Private World of Tasha Tudor, Tasha Tudor's Garden, Tasha Tudor, The Direction of Her Dreams, Christmas Card Designs of Tasha Tudor. There are also three DVDs revealing her lifestyle: The Golden Key, Take Joy!, and Take Peace.
