Maurice Sendak: On Life, Art and Inspiration

Posted on 08. Jan, 2012 by in Videos & Trailers

The producers of Tate Modern’s TateShots, the Tate gallery’s mini-documentary series, recently created a video featuring famed gay illustrator and writer Maurice Sendak.

Sendak, who is best known for his iconic and controversial children’s book Where the Wild Things Are, published in 1963, is still creating a ruckus at age 83.

The TateShots video portrays the artist as seemingly still very spirited and still searching for ways to make awe-inspiring work.
