The Art Dr. Seuss Collection – 20th Anniversary Celebration
Coming to Ann Jackson Gallery for a limited engagement!
San Diego, California 1996: Art dealer Robert Chase met Dr. Seuss's wife, Audrey Geisel, to discuss her late husband’s artwork. While the world knew of Dr. Seuss’s prolific children’s book illustrations, hundreds of major artworks spanning nearly his entire 70-year career had remained unseen. This archive included concept drawings and final line drawings painstakingly created for his children’s books, artwork created in the 1930s and 1940s for early commercial projects, and private paintings and sculpture done within the intimate setting of his studio. Both Chase and Geisel believed this Secret Art deserved to be seen and the historic project began nearly two years later, six years after Geisel’s death.
Ann Jackson Gallery shares The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection featuring known and unknown works from the life of Theodor Seuss Geisel. Artworks will be on display and available for acquisition.
