“This exhibition at the Society of Illustrators showcases the collection of Justin G. Schiller and Dennis M. V. David, prominent authorities on Sendak’s artwork. Maurice Sendak: A Celebration of the Artist and His Work features more than two hundred previously unpublished studies, sketches, photographs, and ephemera, including rare and previously unpublished artwork from Where the Wild Things Are. In this one-of-a-kind collection, the broad range of Sendak’s work—from his picture book and poster illustrations to his commercial and theater designs—is explored. Edited by noted children’s book historian Leonard S. Marcus, the catalogue also includes twelve essays from prominent scholars and historians including Marcus, Iona Opie, Steven Heller, and Paul O.
