Item #29694 BOY AND GIRL PREPARING GARDEN. Tasha Tudor.

BOY AND GIRL PREPARING GARDEN

ca. 1970. frame 8 3/4" x 10 3/4"

A fine Pencil and ink drawing of two children preparing their Spring garden. A boy with a shovel, and a girl managing a hoe. Brown wash for hi-liting and shading. The illustration was published to illustrate "The Merry-Go-Round Garden," page 139 in Betty Crocker's Kitchen Gardens (1971,1979). 3 3/4" x 6 1/4" exposed under two mats and in a wood frame. The top mat has been covered in a red gingham fabric for an unusual country appeal. This is an exceptional example of Tudor's mid-career work. It is a simplistic drawing and yet with all the right details, it is a thoroughly charming piece of country art. The book is post 1971. It's art is not listed in Edward B. Hills A Partial List... A number of pieces from Kitchen Gardens are listed on a green Original Paintings and Drawings from the Dutch Inn; but not this piece. Shipped insured and safely wrapped.
