A New Year!

Last month proved to be busier than expected so there was not a lot of time for posting, but here is a quick rundown of highlights from December:

Babar. Drawing Babar: Early Watercolors and Drawings, The Morgan Library & Museum (September 19, 2008 - January 4, 2009).

This exhibition has already ended, but you can still view items from the exhibition on the Morgan Library's website, www.themorgan.org, including the original maquette for Histoire de Babar.

(Image above from the Morgan Library's website: Jean de Brunhoff , "The elephants carried Babar, Arthur, and Celeste in triumph," study for Histoire de Babar, le petit éléphant, 1931, watercolor, The Morgan Library & Museum. Gift of Laurent, Mathieu, and Thierry de Brunhoff, and purchased with the assistance of The Florence Gould Foundation and the Acquisitions Fund, Fellows Endowment Fund, Gordon N. Ray Fund, and Heineman Fund, 2004.)

Holiday windows at Bergdorf Goodman. This year the Four Seasons were rendered in magical winter white. You can view all the holiday windows on the Bergdorf Goodman website, www.bergdorfgoodman.com.)

Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Arizona. A trip to see my parents gave me the oportunity to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's amazing "camp" in the desert. (For tour information, visit www.franklloydwright.org.)

This year's Christmas Tree. Not as elaborate as anything in Midtown, but it is our tallest one yet and was fun to decorate (Whistler helped).

And of course, some beautiful new print jobs!
Like the Rococo invitation set below that was printed in a custom sage green colorway.
