From the Publisher. The preeminent children’s book artist of the twentieth century, Maurice Sendak and his 60-year career are celebrated in this full-color catalog of more than two hundred images being exhibited at the Society of Illustrators in New York City from June 11–August 17, 2013. Accompanied by twelve essays by such noted scholars and historians as Leonard S. Marcus, Iona Opie, Steven Heller, and Paul O. Zelinsky, Maurice Sendak: A Celebration of the Artist and His Work showcases the collection of Justin G. Schiller and Dennis M. V. David, prominent authorities on Sendak’s artwork, and is a deeply personal and thoughtful tribute to a seminal artist whose singular vision has captured the imaginations of countless children and grown-ups throughout the world.
