Heart and Humor: The Picture Book Art of William Steig

In its continuing aim to showcase the masters of the picture book genre, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is delighted to present the work of the renowned William Steig, whose long and distinguished career as an author and illustrator of children's books was all the more remarkable given that the artist was sixty-one when he created his first picture book, CDB! The exhibition, curated by independent scholar, Jane Bayard Curley, feautures work from Steig's key publications, including Dr. DeSoto, and offers several examples from each book to provide a deeper understanding of Steig's artistic approach. The Museum's goal is to provide a fitting tribute to a remarkable talent who has influenced countless readers, writers, and artists.

This exhibition has been made possible by a generous grant from Peter and Helen Bing.
