Wild things are happening : the art of Maurice Sendak

Summary: "Published in conjunction with the eponymous Sendak retrospective touring museums in the United States and Europe in 2022-24, Wild Things Are Happening emphasizes Maurice Sendak's relationship to the history of art and the influences of his art collecting on his images. It features previously unpublished sketches, story boards and paintings that emphasize Sendak's creative processes. Bringing together a broad diversity of perspectives on the award-winning artist, the book includes an extended essay by the renowned art historian Thomas Crow that traces the genesis and cultural contexts of Sendak's most famous book, Where the Wild Things Are. It also includes interviews and appreciations by many of Sendak's key collaborators, including Carroll Ballard, Michael Di Capua, John Dugdale, Spike Jonze, Twyla Tharp and Arthur Yorinks."-- Publisher's description.
