Order Nr. 139161

In three parts devoted to Bemelmans as writer, Bemelmans as artist, and Bemelmans as creator of Madeline, we consider Ludwig Bemelmans's multiple careers. Restaurateur and hotelier, soldier, memoirist, short story writer, novelist, travel writer, script writer, cartoonist, illustrator, commercial artist, painter-all of Bemelmans's other personal and artistic endeavors, including even his other children's books, have disappeared beneath the towering success of Madeline. All deserve a second look. This fully-illustrated catalog of the 2015 exhibition at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts contains an expanded introduction by the curator.
