Beatrix Potter, Sotheby's, & Me

Recently an original watercolor illustration for a book (The Rabbits' Christmas Party) by Beatrix Potter sold at auction at Sotheby's in London for $578,700. It was purchased by a private British collector - Sotheby's press release here.

Also see this wonderful post on Beatrix Potter Rarities from BibliOdyssey in Sydney.

My framed print is from MFA Boston, 1983. The illustrations (Rabbits Dancing and Blind Man's Bluff ) were on loan to the museum. Sorry about the camera glare!
