Excluding "Lucinda" doll,
most original art and most signed items

A doll hand-crafted by Tasha Tudor for her daughter Bethany.

They have lived together for more than sixty-three years.

Lucinda has a lovely soft face and was made/outfitted in 1954. She is thus one of the earliest of about a dozen dolls Tudor crafted between 1949 and 1997. She has been one of the treasured family dolls.

Lucinda's wardrobe: hats, mittens and a wool plaid winter coat, dresses, petticoats and stockings! She travels with her own trunk. See item 28549 for more details.

Tasha Tudor
American Illustrator

Tasha Tudor captivated many people during her long life (1915-2008). 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 the country speaking about her books, her art and her lifestyle. She was loved for her knowledge of flowers: she knew how to grow them, she created realistic paintings of flowers. They appear in nearly all her books. Examine her art and you will discover a world of images of children, dolls, and Christmas. These are nearly all in New England settings. Wander through our web store to see images of her books, Christmas cards, paper dolls, and many fine art prints. We have original art, too. As Tasha was fond of saying... Take Joy!

FEATURED ORIGINAL ART


25511:

Full page watercolor to illustrate the short story and printed as page [28] in Tasha Tudor's Bedtime Book, Platt & Munk, 1977. Unmounted piece of watercolor paper measuring 11 5/8 " x 9 ". The 10 1/8" x 8" image is fully reproduced in the book but in a milky sort of view. The vivid detail that Tudor painted in lost in the reproduction. The central image has the two timid children standing before the witch and her house made of bread. The picture contrasts the dark: the hag, two vultures, a snake in the grass, bones on the ground; with items much more familiar to Tudor: bees buzzing about poppies, morning glories climbing the cottage and a rain barrel standing at the corner. A shadow of one of the vultures is poorly painted on the ground. Tudor painted a dewey spider's web in the lower left corner. Signed in pencil atop the paint in the lower right corner. There is residual gum around the back edges from mounting adhesive tape; and a penciled $50.00 on the back.
