Nice to see these images on your blog. Roger Duvoisin was my much adored grandfather. I spent a lot of my childhood with my grandparents on their beautiful property in the country side of New Jersey. Their home and grounds were a weekend retreat for their friends who lived in New York and would come out for weekends in the country. It was a wonderful way of life.

I have two young children now and they're lucky to have several of his original illustrations adorning the walls of their room. My grandfather was a wonderful man with a deep love of nature and animals and a wry sense of humour. My grandmother was equally wonderful and to this day, I miss them both. It's nice to see their work remembered and posted online.

Thanks so much for your comments. Your grandparents did amazing work and I plan on more posts in the near future. Your children are lucky indeed. I buy every Duvoisin illustrated book I can find. He is truly one of the best!
Take care,

I have four animal water colours not signed by your grandfather, but it says underneath that they were drawn by Roger Duvoisin for Lord & Taylor.
