Maurice Sendak
Sundance Childrens Theater
signed in ink
measures approximately: 17" W x 22" H 

Original 1988 art print for an intended collaboration between Robert Redford (The Sundance Institute) and Maurice Sendak, the latter being Artistic Director with Arthur Yorinks as Associate Director. In the end, negotiations fell through and distribution of the posters ceased. Sendak and Yorinks later created their own independent national children's theatre repertory company called The Night Kitchen Theatre.

Maurice Bernard Sendak (June 10, 1928 – May 8, 2012) was an American illustrator and writer of children's books. He became widely known for his book Where the Wild Things Are, first published in 1963. Born to Polish-Jewish parents, his childhood was affected by the death of many of his family members during the Holocaust. Sendak also wrote works such as In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There and illustrated many works by other authors including the Little Bear books by Else Holmelund Minarik.
