The catalog from the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art's exhibition, "The Art of Maurice Sendak: Inside and Out" on view from November 22, 2002 to January 12, 2003.
From the catalog's "Introduction," by H. Nichols B. Clark: "It is fitting that the work of Maurice Sendak comprises the inaugural exhibit of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. While an acknowledged master of the genre, his creative talent extends well beyond the picture book. Sendak has garnered high esteem in the realm of costume and set design for opera….As we honor picture book art and demonstrate its substance and sophistication, Sendak's industrious career permits us to look at the material from a broad art-historical vantage point. We have chosen to view his work through the lens of interior scenes and landscapes."
