The Maurice Sendak Collection

In this video presentation, Project Archivist Clara Nguyen introduces three objects from The Maurice Sendak Collection to be explored in more depth in subsequent videos. The objects featured in this introduction video include a preliminary drawing from A Hole is To Dig, a final drawing from We are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy, and a dummy book from In the Night Kitchen. Each of these objects provide insight into Maurice Sendak’s creative process and the relationships he had in his life with other contemporary artists and writers.
