Beatrix Potter (1866-1943)
‘The Rabbits’ Christmas Party’
At Sotheby’s London, Beatrix Potter’s original watercolour illustration of the final scene from “The Rabbit’ Christmas Party” was sold for the remarkable amount of £289,250 – nearly five times its presale estimate (est. £40,000-60,000). This has set a new record for book illustration sold at an auction.
The watercolour was one of 20 original illustrations, books, unpublished Christmas cards and letters by Beatrix Potter. They came from her brother, Bertram Potter, which were offered for sale in today’s auction of English Literature and History. The whole collection, which represents the most extensive group of Beatrix Potter artwork to have appeared on the market went for a total of £748,200.
Bertram Potter must be a very happy man.
Shepard Fairey has a whole range of subject but I posted these portraits because I think they work wonderfully together. There is something very prolific about them – Perhaps the colors (red and black) and/or the strong cultural and social references which gives these art works such weight.
