        SENDAK IN PHILADELPHIA ROSENBACH MUSEUM EXHIBIT LITHOGRAPH 18 X 24 SIGNED! [FROM SENDAK'S OWM ARCHIVE]

      For Rosenbach. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1995. First Edition. Print. Art; Sendak; Commercial lithography ; Elephant Folio 23" tall; 1 pages; Maurice Bernard Sendak (born June 10, 1928) is an American writer and illustrator of children's literature. He is best known for his book "Where the Wild Things Are," published in 1963. Sendak gained international acclaim after writing and illustrating "Where the Wild Things Are," a Caldecott Medal-winning picture book about a boy banished to his bedroom without his supper. He deals with his anger by imagining himself king of an island filled with enormous, frightening monsters. Critically acclaimed and controversial, Sendak is one of the first children's writers to deal frankly with the fears and anxieties of childhood. "Where the Wild Things Are" is the first in a trilogy, to be followed by "In the Night Kitchen" (1970) and "Outside over There" (1981) , which, in Sendak's words, are "all variations on the same theme: how children master various feelings--anger, boredom, fear, frustration, jealousy--and manage to come to grips with the realities of their lives." Mr. Sendak's original drawings are constantly in demand by museums, art galleries and collectors everywhere. Although most of his original work is archived at the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, his pictures are represented in many major collections around the world. It understates his importance to simply call him a genius in his field: he has been called "the Picasso of Children's Books", and for more than a half-century his work has been critically praised, admired and emulated. Retrospective exhibitions have been held at the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford, 1975) , the Pierpont Morgan library (New York, 1981) , the Indianapolis Museum of Art (1999) , the Brennan Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta (2001, a version of which went on national tour) , the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Books (November 2002) , Brandywine River Museum (2003) , and most recently a remarkable survey of his art at the Jewish Museum (New York, 2005) covering both his book work and sets/costumes for opera and ballet, subsequently extending the show to the Tampa Art Museum in Florida (2006). This is an original full-color poster for the installation of an interactive Sendak exhibition at the Please Touch Museum and a joint retrospective of Maurice Sendak’s art with reference to his influences at the Rosenbach. This uncommon poster illustrates a Colonial-stylized Wild Thing “William Penn” standing atop City Hall flanked by Max and another Wild Thing. The work (Hanrahan C25) is in excellent condition, signed on the "dome" inside illustration. It should be noted that this Sendak poster comes directly from the artist's own archive. Red objects in the picture are positioning magnets. ; Signed by Illustrator .

        TALE OF PETER RABBIT

      1995. 1. POTTER,BEATRIX. THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT. Battledore Books 1995. This is a magnificnet Portfolio of prints from the original blocks with an appreciation signed by Maurice Sendak. The original first printing of Peter Rabbit was produced in 1901 by Potter herself after efforts at finding a publisher failed. She privately printed 250 copies of Peter Rabbit with a color frontispiece and 42 black line illustrations (including the cover). The blocks for this printing were only used one other time (for the second printing of 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, the publisher has located 34 of these original blocks and has produced this wonderfully elaborate portfolio, LIMITED TO 250 NUMBERED SETS. Each illustration is printed on fine acid free paper and each has its own enclosure printed with the caption. All are housed in a cloth clamshell case with a leather label. The images are remarkably sharp and clean. Featured before the prints is a 20 page ESSAY BY MAURICE SENDAK - an appreciation of Beatrix Potter. Sendak's admiration for Potter is longstanding and having the association between Sendak - the greatest contemporary author/illustrator and children's book, and Potter - author of one of the greatest literary works for children, couldn't be more significant. It has been printed by letterpress and SIGNED BY SENDAK! Included with this portfolio is a wonderful block print by Potter made from the original zinc line-cut. It is previously unpublished and is a charming woodcut entitled "Come dance a jig, to my Granny's Pig. The print is housed in a printed folder and is accompanied by a descriptive commentary by Ann Hobbs (Curator and the V&A). This is altogether a most wonderful item for anyone who appreciates Beatrix Potter.
