Wild Things

The Art of Maurice Sendak

 

Sothebys has on exhibition  preliminary and finished drawings, artwork for posters, theatrical sets and costumes, and more from Maurice Sendak.  His  world recreated at the gallery  is at once playful, inventive, subversive, and, above all, wild.

A closing thought: Many of the places I visit may not your “cup-of-tea”.

My blog is just reminding  us to enjoy what is around us.
