"Bird Feeds Snake," Whimsical Children's Book Illustration by Blanchard, 1960s



Entirely charming and whimsical, this original painting by Robert Blanchard depicts a fantastical scene: bird and snake as best friends, the tall, fuzzy bird feeding a berry to the green, red-tongued snake, all at high noon under a high sun. This illustration may never have been published, but the artist Robert Blanchard was widely known for his book illustrations for many publishers, including Ballantine Books. Blanchard was a native of Massachusetts, and during World War II, worked at Disney Studios on films to support the war effort. Later he worked in New York and lived in upstate. This painting is executed in ink and watercolor on artist's board.
