"SASSAFRAS HILL" ORIGINAL ART FOR IRENE DASH CHRISTMAS CARD ID DT74-78X



#28524

"SASSAFRAS HILL" ORIGINAL ART FOR IRENE DASH CHRISTMAS CARD ID DT74-78X ill. Tasha Tudor. Webster, NH, ca. 1958. Exposed art 4" x 7 1/4" , under .

Donn and Doris Purvis home - 44 Carter Hill Road, Concord, NH as painted by their good friend Tasha Tudor in 1958. Mrs. Purvis owned the house since 1936 under her previous married name. Tasha Tudor admired the house so much that she copied it inch for inch. Her son Seth and friend Roger Bacon built a replica in Marlboro, VT. (North Road to Raven Road) ca 1970-72. This was Tudor's final home. This 1958 art carries a great deal of significance to Tudor and her home. The house shown is the real one in Concord, NH, previously known as Sassafras Hill, the home of Donn and Doris Purvis. Tasha Tudor painted a number of different Christmas card illustrations from their house during the 1950s and 1960s. This exterior view is interesting for the open view and lack of heavy vegetation. The house still stands but is more difficult to see today because trees have grown up on all sides. The ultimate significance of the home and this lovely little watercolor is that Tudor copied this house for her final home in Vermont, ca. 1971. We have not opened the piece.
