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.

28068:BOY IN A ROCKING CHAIR, READING  and  GIRL CUDDLING HER DOLL, IN A ROCKING CHAIR    2 Pieces to be sold together

An incidental drawing of a Boy and Girl. These unpublished watercolor paintings are framed separately. The young boy and girl sit in a quiet moment, each in a personal rocking chair. The girl in a pink dress and apron is cuddling her doll. The boy in a blue plaid shirt and rolled-up blue jeans is rapt by the book he reads. We have not identified these two paintings with any book, or card. They are in a similar style to other illustrations featuring children that Tudor painted in the 1950s and 1960s. See, for example, Tasha Tudor's Five Senses, First Delights and First Poems of Childhood. The two pieces are in "French mats" and matching gilt wood frames. Matching vertical cut ovals in the mats expose 6 " x 4 " of the underlying painting. The mat for the "boy" painting has aged to a darker color that its mate. It also shows some light acidification from the mat at the edges of the opening. The "girl" painting does not. Each frame is backed with black paper, with no indication of framer or date. Both pieces are signed at the lower right. The signature to the girl is a tiny print. From a Pennsylvania family. SOLD ONLY AS A PAIR
