Maurice Sendak Exhibit and Sale

March 25, 2021 - July 10, 2021

MAURICE SENDAK (1928-2012) illustrated his first book in 1946 at the age of 18 (published the following year) and went on to become the most important children’s book artist of the 20th century.  In association with Justin G Schiller and Battledore Ltd and in celebration of this 75th Anniversary, the Society of Illustrators is sponsoring a Retrospective Exhibition and Sale of original Sendak artwork – more than a hundred pictures: pencil sketches, ink drawings, full watercolors and lithographs – including for the first time on public display original art from Sendak’s first book, also studies for published illustrations, poster designs and operatic stage sets.
