Down on The Bowery at the junction of Spring
Theodor Geisel is doing his thing
"Doctor Seuss" as he is more famously known
At THE POP GALLERY his "Secret Art" is being shown
So lovers of Seuss and lovers of art
Ted Geisel most certainly will steal your heart
Come one and come all for the rarest of shows
Will YOU snag some artwork? Well nobody knows...
For over 60 years, Dr. Seuss’s illustrations have brought a visual realization to his fantastic and imaginary worlds. His artistic talent went far beyond the printed page and yet, to this day, his Secret Art Collection is virtually unknown to the general public. Throughout his lifetime, Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) created paintings and sculpture, which he secreted away at the Dr. Seuss Estate.
Ted’s iconic cat, however, was never far from his artistic thoughts and he often drew himself as "The Cat Behind The Hat". His cat was the protagonist in several of his Secret Art paintings and, as a fun aside, many of his early advertisements and cartoons had “cat bystanders” witnessing all the action. They hinted at his adventures across the world, his reclusive sensibility despite his fame, and his penchant for the childlike fantasy and humor, which infused nearly every facet of his life.
