    A Lovely Original Tasha Tudor Pencil Sketch

    Tasha Tudor, illustrator. Original Signed Pencil Sketch. Visible area measures approximately 6 x 6.5 inches, matted to an overall size of 10 x 11 inches. Signed "T. Tudor" at lower right. This lovely original sketch depicts a Victorian-era girl and boy in somewhat ragged clothing, the boy with hat in hand, under the Roman numerals XI, presumably chapter XI of one of Tudor's illustrated works. The sketch has no visible flaws and is in extra-fine condition.

    Tasha Tudor was one of the most beloved children's illustrators of the twentieth century, writing and illustrating her own books, as well as classic editions of The Wind in the Willows, The Night Before Christmas, The Secret Garden, and Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses. She earned Caldecott Honors for her Mother Goose in 1945 and 1 Is One in 1957. She passed away peacefully in 2008, perhaps fulfilling her edict that "When I die, I'm going right back to the 1830s. I'm not even afraid of dying. I think it must be quite exciting."
