Dreadful Things Happen

This fall the Rosenbach Library and Museum in Philadelphia shows Maurice Sendak’s gruesome illustrations of the classic folktales by brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Maurice Sendak has been admirer of those stories all his life because of their mix of funny, cruel and strange. “That’s why the children loved them,” said Sendak, “Because they were real life. Dreadful things happen. What more could you want?”

The exhibition is on display until November 7th.
