Vintage Daffodils Jonquils American Batik Art Tibby Llewellyn Savannah Georgia 1981
This beautiful and elegant original batik art on silk shantung was created in 1981 by Tibby Llewellyn of Savannah, Georgia.
Through the use of only white and shades of yellow, the artist features two daffodils (the flowers and their stems and leaves). Her signature - Tibby - is included in the batik at the lower right.
The pale beige / cream mat and the silk art look different in various lighting conditions. The yellow sometimes appears more pale and faint --- and in brighter light it is a more dramatic and vibrant yellow. In some lighting the mat looks like a pale pink / blush cream color.
There is no glass. You can get glass for it, or display it "as is". If the mat and the gold metal frame do not work in your decor, you can replace them. If you look very closely, there are some faint small marks and dings on the mat --- but if hung on the wall or displayed on a table top small easel, you do not notice them. If you also look very closely at the gold metal frame, you can find some small rubs marks and scratches from 37 years of handling.
The frame is approximately 10 1/4" x 12 1/8" (and over 3/4" deep). The mat opening is approximately 4 7/8" x 6 3/4".

The following information about the artist is from the Gallery 209 Savannah site ( www.gallery209savannah.com ). Gallery 209 has been in the fine art business for over forty years.
Batik Artist, Tibby Llewellyn has been working in batik since 1972. Self-taught in the batik process, she has studied art for many years. She has a degree in mathematics from Duke University and feels that the logic and precision of math play a very important part in creating batik. Her batiks are presented both as fine art in frames and as wearable art - silk scarves and wraps - each an original signed by the artist.
Tibby has won a number of several awards during the years she has been showing professionally and has been honored in one-artist shows at the Abbas Gallery, south of Baltimore, Maryland, at the Towson West Gallery in Towson, Maryland and at Gallery 209 in Savannah. She was the featured artist in an invitational show at the Haiti, Etc. Gallery in Washington, D.C. Her work is represented in many private collections in the United States and Europe.
