A distinctive rabbit, Colonel Bunn frequented the front yard and barn of Tasha Tudor's Webster, NH home. Tasha Tudor's mother, Rosamond Tudor, had an acquaintance, a Colonel in the Army, whose last name was Bunn. Though Tasha Tudor was nine at the time, the personality and distinctive name of this individual was such that many years later, the rabbit depicted here was named after him. The original of this drawing is a pastel, done in 1960.
