DescriptionMaurice Bernard Sendak - Original Illustration (1997).
Titled: Hillbilly Wild Thing.
Maurice Sendak is considered the leading author and illustrator of children's books. His fantastical creatures reveal the range and reach of his abundant imagination. This illustration, and others in today's sale, represent the first grouping of original Sendak art available at auction in years.
This fine original drawing was prepared as finished artwork to benefit a children's charity in Charleston WV, and was then reproduced as a limited edition print by Parchment Gallery Graphics in 1997. The coloring was applied to the artwork by the artist afterwards to enhance the quality of his image. Seldom does one have the opportunity to purchase an original Wild Thing drawing by Mr Sendak, and especially one that has already been published as a fine art print.
Mixed media on paper, framed (15.5 x 12), sight size approximately 10.5 x 8. Signed lower right.
