 ‘The Art of Dr Seuss’ Collection

An exhibition showcasing a selection of works from the Estate of Dr Seuss will be showing at Mitchell Fine Art in Fortitude Valley from Wednesday November 16th.

‘Dr Seuss’ is the pseudonym name created by Theodor ‘Seuss’ Geisel, an editorial cartoonist in the 1920’s.

Now spanning five generations, everyone is familiar with the books of ‘Dr Seuss’, but not everyone knows that Geisel was also a visual artist who painted and sculpted for his own enjoyment.  He termed this work his ‘Secret Art’.

Geisel 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 collection was launched.

The exhibition showcases 49 works from the Art of Dr Seuss Collection; including limited editions of Illustration works, Anniversary prints, two Unorthodox Taxidermy’s, a Bronze Sculpture and 9 works from Secret Art Series and Archive Collection.

There are several works in the exhibition that are now sold out and no longer available to purchase from the publisher.

A highlight of this year’s exhibition is two new releases from the Estate – ‘Talk, Talk, Talk’ and ‘There’s So So Much to Read’.

This exciting exhibition is a wonderful experience and allows the public to see and buy works from the collection.

The exhibition is showing at Mitchell Fine Art, 86 Arthur Street Fortitude Valley from 16th November to 20th December 2016.

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.
