Description

Decorate your wall with Judi Vaillancourt’s inspirational portrait of Santa which was first used on the Vaillancourt Christmas Wine label. The fine-art giclée print is decoupaged onto a hangable chalkware frame that has been hand gilded by a Vaillancourt artist. When we think about Santa, we are most likely imagining a hybrid of attributes taken from Thomas Nast’s 1881 illustration and Haddon Sundblom’s “Coca-Cola” Santa from the 1920s. For Judi, when she thinks about Santa her mind goes to two other sources. First, Samuel Anderson Robb—an American wood carver—who is credited with carving a Santa figure in the late 1880s who resided in New York City’s Lutheran church for over 40 years as a church leaflet holder before finding its way into Colonial Williamsburg’s collection. The second inspiration comes from a Massachusetts artists, Norman Rockwell, who had a reputation for capturing the true human nature of a person in his art work. Today, Judi Vaillancourt’s interpretation of Santa shows the pure characteristics of the personification of Christmas traditions.
