Welcome to the World of Tasha Tudor

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


22418:

A lovely and detailed watercolor published on page [15], CARRIE'S GIFT by Efner Tudor Holmes. In a tan mat under a brown mat. No signature is evident. A young girl carrying a covered basket toward a rather forlorn farm house. This is a genuinely beautiful painting in the Victorian pastoral esthetic. The published version has atrocious muted colors with none of the immediacy of the original. The matting masks quite a bit of the bottom including the girls feet.
