198_2623Today’s Monday Morning Art is a departure. Rather than feature my art, this week we bring you a photo essay of The Art of Dr. Seuss Gallery, which recently opened in Water Tower Place in Chicago. This is the latest of a series of galleries which are the exclusive home to limited edition prints by Ted Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, the beloved creator of such children’s books characters as The Cat in The Hat, The Grinch and The Lorax.

It’s not common knowledge that Geisel dabbled in fine art and sculpture. The primary reason for that is that he didn’t want this art to be seen while he was alive. The Gallery presents an amazing and overwhelming collection of his work, including nudes, abstracts, sculptures and preliminary sketches for his most famous works. It’s a new side of the artist that few have seen before.

If you want to purchase some of this art, visit the official website. For a detailed review of the June opening of this gallery, check HERE. (There are galleries in Cinncinnati, OH and Greensboro, NC, if you don’t want to go so far)
