Offered is the original cover art painting by Jean Tamburine Bertolli for Molly and Mike - A Golden Stickum Book (A Big Golden Book) published by Golden Press in 1960. The image measures 13.75 x 11 (board is 16 x 13.25 ). Signed lower right, and artist wrote her name and address in pencil in the bottom margin. Painting is in excellent condition.
Wouldn't this look great framed behind glass with your own children's names painting onto the glass in the style of the original book? You will also be getting a copy of the book which is in itself quite scarce (the covers are in great shape, some of the stickers have been cut and pasted, and the first few pages are torn).
Jean Tamburine studied at the Art Students League, New York City, and privately with Carlo Ciampaglia, and Elizabeth Gordon Chandler. She is a member of The American Artists Professional League, Academic Artists Association, American Medalli Sculpture Association and the North Shore Arts Association. Her work is in both public and private collections and she has won many awards.
