A Weston Woods/Gene Deitch celluloid from Maurice Sendak's In the Night Kitchen
1987, gouache on a full sheet of celluloid, matted. Gene Deitch animated and directed this 1987 cartoon adaptation of Maurice Sendak's In the Night Kitchen. Mickey falls asleep and dreams of falling into the "night kitchen," where he is nearly baked into a cake, makes a plane out of bread, and flies off to get milk. Sendak's original artwork is faithfully preserved in this animated presentation with Peter Schickele's narration and original musical compositions. The cel is signed by Gene Deitch, and presented on a reproduction background originally painted by Gene Deitch.
10 ½ x 12 1/2 in.
