The secret art of Dr. Seuss by Theodor Seuss Geisel( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you've ever read Oh, the Places You'll Go!, The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, or any of the dozens of books written and illustrated by Theodor Geisel, you may think you're familiar with the work of the man who delighted millions as "Dr. Seuss." But the wildly imaginative creations collected in these pages show a previously unseen dimension of Geisel's art. These fabulous and whimsical paintings, created for his own pleasure and never before shown to the public, will enchant and amaze you. These fantastical images have the inimitable style of Geisel's alter ego Dr. Seuss, frequently depicting outlandish creatures in otherworldly settings. The puckish Seuss humor is in evidence, as well as the insight that often gave his stories deeper meaning. But these paintings break new ground, using a dazzling rainbow of hues not seen in the primary-color palette of Geisel's books for children. The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss exhibits a sophisticated, technically accomplished, and often quite unrestrained side of Geisel's talent. As his widow, Audrey Geisel, writes in her eloquent note to the collection: "I remember telling Ted that there would come a day when many of his paintings would be seen and he would thus share with his fans another facet of himself - his private self. That day has come."

Dr. Seuss, the cat behind the hat by Caroline M Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Ted Geisel created a body of previously little-known work during his leisure hours that he called his 'Midnight Paintings, ' and which is now known as 'The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss.' This irrepressible and soulful collection redefines Ted Geisel as an iconic American artist. For sixty years, his 'Secret Art' allowed Geisel to expand his artistic boundaries without the confines and pressures of commercial deadlines and influences. These paintings afforded the peaceful distraction that he craved, and through this work, the tenets of surrealism--surprise and juxtaposition--energized his sensibilities. This volume exuberantly juxtaposes Geisel's 'Midnight Paintings' with his best-loved children's books because this was how Dr. Seuss constructed his creative life--his days devoted to literature for children, his nights to letting his mind and palette wander to even stranger shores. Inevitably, Geisel created images in his private artworks that would find their way into his literary projects. Though he fiercely protected his 'Secret Art' from criticism during his lifetime, his intention all along was for these works to be seen when he was gone."--Publisher's description
