SENDAK IN SOHO - Exhibition Art
"I never thought I'd sell this artwork. It holds a place in my heart almost too dear for me to part with it. But, as I age, I find myself letting go of things I never thought I would. Now, with the Wild Things movie about to be released, feels like the perfect time. Having worked with Nick and Heidi at Animazing Gallery in the past adds to my comfort in selling these pieces." - Maurice Sendak
OVERVIEW | In Fall of 2009, Animazing Gallery was honored to present the world’s largest exhibition & sale of original illustrations from the collection of legendary artist and author Maurice Sendak. Sendak in SoHo coincided with critically-acclaimed Sendak retrospectives at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City and the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. More than 200 pieces by Mr. Sendak comprised the exhibition, along with the first-ever limited edition bronze sculpture based on Where the Wild Things Are, and etchings, limited editions and a commemorative poster. Most of the exhibition pieces were either published or created during the conceptual process as Mr Sendak rendered the finished work. Portions of the proceeds went to the Rosenbach Museum & Library and the Jane Goodall Institute.
