Controversy surrounding piece of art can be a sign of integrity on the part of the creator. Such is the case with Maurice Sendak. Whether it’s the teeth on his “too scary” monsters or the depiction of—gasp!—a stark naked toddler protagonist, Sendak’s work pushed the envelope, but all in the belief that children were often smarter than their parents—or at least smart enough to handle a fairytale. Personally selected by Sendak from In the Night Kitchen, this framed 1971 reproduction was printed on a single sheet of paper and shows no center crease or division.

Original 1971 fine art paper reproduction in black hardwood frame with archival mat and mounting hardware. Includes a copy of letter from Maurice Sendak telling the story of how and why the works were selected to be included in this unique portfolio.

To create the print this reproduction is based upon, Sendak’s original artwork was re-photographed at the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia. Each image was perfectly reproduced, and for the very first time, those pictures (which were created as double-page images) were printed on single sheets of paper. This reproduction shows no center crease or division. Measurements given are for full sheets, including margins and frame.
