TUDOR,TASHA. ORIGINAL ART: PUMPKIN MOONSHINE. Offered here is the original watercolor used in Tudor's first book, Pumpkin Moonshine published in 1938 by Oxford University Press. It accompanies the text "When they reached the field, Sylvie looked among the shucks of corn for the very fattest pumpkin". Sylvie is standing in a field, shielding her eyes from the sun, corn shuck and pumpkin on her left, Wiggie the dog on her right. The verso of the watercolor contains Tudor's hand-lettered text for the page preceding the illustration in the book. The capital letter T is is in red and decorated with reeds. The text begins: The cornfield was on top of the hill, quite a ways from the house, so Sylvie took Wiggy for company..." The art measures 4 1/4 x 3 3/8", not signed, two barely visible pin holes in margin else Fine. It is matted so that both sides of the piece, both the illustration and the text can be seen. Original art from Tudor's first book is rare, especially sought after and lovely.
