Tom Bombadil And The River Daughter Original Gouache painting, framed. By Ted Nasmith, Tolkien illustrator.

Ted Nasmith has credted the fully illustrated Silmarillion, JRR Tolkien calendars, many Tolkien books and scenes from the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and more recently the illustrated guide to the Universe of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin (A Game of Thrones) This is a stunning and highly collectable piece of art. Please bid generously. A Note on this piece from Ted Nasmith Tom Bombadil and the River Daughter is an original work of mine created for The Lord of the Rings collectible plate series from The Danbury Mint, England. It was inspired by the poem ‘The Adventures of Tom Bombadil’ by JRR Tolkien; for me as pure an expression of ‘faerie’ as one might find among his writings. In this work, I wanted to capture Tom’s delight in and fondness for Goldberry (the River Daughter of the title), as well as the enchantment of the Withywindle Valley under its sun-dappled Willow trees. I wanted to evoke the warmth of a summer day, with dragonflies darting to and fro, wind in the rustling leaves, and goldfish sunning in the green, cool depths of the pool. The medium is gouache on illustration board, and the size is roughly 13” wide, in circular format. The online catalogue of Ted Nasmith work shows retail prices. This piece is listed starting at £1250 and other similar pieces from the series of 12 plates sold for £4000 each, this is the last one remaining and was not previously available for sale with the other illustrations of the plate series. This painting can be shipped worldwide, to include secure packaging, insurance and tracked courier service. UK £30, Europe £40, USA & rest of World £70.
