Original watercolor painting of a tree.
1977. A delightful 15 by 11-inch painting of a large gnarled tree, its branches forming a leafy canopy over a portion of meadow grown thick with green grasses and pink thistle. The tree is painted with a wooden sign nailed crookedly to its trunk, bearing the artist's signature and date. Sarah Chamberlain studied with Barry Moser and Leonard Baskin and, from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, ran the Chamberlain Press. Her work has illustrated numerous texts, from Aesop and the Brothers Grimm to Charles Simic and many miniature books. Matted in gray and set in a narrow navy lacquered wood frame. Slight scratching to frame, else very fine. Item #21112
