The Art of Dr Seuss Retrospective Exhibition
‘The Art of Dr. Seuss’ Retrospective Exhibition to show in Brisbane.
A retrospective exhibition showcasing the works from the Estate of Dr Seuss will be showing at Mitchell Fine Art, in Fortitude Valley from November 25th.
‘Dr Seuss’ is the pseudonym name created by editorial cartoonist Theodor Seuss Geisel. Everyone is familiar with the Dr Seuss books and illustrations however Seuss was foremost a visual artist who painted and sculpted for his own enjoyment. He termed this work his ‘Secret Art’.
Seuss always dreamed of sharing his ‘Secret Art’ with his fans and entrusted his wife to carry out his wishes once he died. In 1995, this dream was realized when The Art of Dr. Seuss project was launched.
The exhibition will showcase a collection of 70 years of Seuss’ art history. This includes limited editions of his Illustration Art, Unorthodox Taxidermy, Bronze Sculptures and the Secret Art Series.
In addition to the exhibition there will be a selection of rare Museum Panels on display. These panels contain memorabilia showcasing the artistic legacy of Theodor Geisel and are on loan from the Seuss Estate for a limited time.
This exciting exhibition is a wonderful experience and allows the public to see and buy fine art prints and sculpture reproduced from Geisel’s original drawings and paintings.
The exhibition is showing at Mitchell Fine Art, 86 Arthur Street Fortitude Valley from 25th November until the 24th December 2015.
The gallery is open 6 days a week from Monday to Friday 10am to 5.30pm and Saturday 10am until 5pm, with onsite parking available.
