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

The producers of Tate Modern‚Äôs 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.
