BOY IN A ROCKING CHAIR, READING and GIRL CUDDLING HER DOLL, IN A ROCKING CHAIR 2 Pieces to be sold together ill. Tasha Tudor. ca. 1964. 1st edition frame size 11 " x 9 5/8".

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 These unpublished watercolor paintings are framed separately.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
