"AGAMEMNON FELL TO THE GROUND" Original watercolor from Tasha Tudor's Favorite Stories, Lippioncott, 1965. page [84] ill. Tasha Tudor. 1964. Exposing approx. 9 ¾ ” x 5 ¾ ”.

Here is an opportunity to own an original watercolor by Tasha Tudor. The piece displays both her illustrative talent and her humor. The art was probably painted in 1964. The penciled signature of T. Tudor shows in the lower right corner; not in the published book. A sliver of white watercolor paper without paint shows at the extreme lower left. The image is of a Fourth of July mishap on the piazza of the Peterkin’s house as described in the Lucretia P. Hale story “The Peterkins Celebrate the Fourth of July,” pages 75-85. Two women and a teenage boy Solomon John jump back in horror as an explosive discharges in front of them and sends another teenage 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. Tudor shows two low windows and has sheathed the white house in flat planks. The tail of an American flag hangs at the top of the painting. 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.
