Picturing the World: The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen

In the forty-three years they worked together, Alice and Martin Provensen illustrated fifty-one books, including beloved Golden Book favorites and Caldecott award winning, The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot, July 25, 1909. They met in 1943 working at the animation department of the Walter Lantz Studio, creator of the "Woody Woodpecker" cartoons, the experience taught them the advantages of making art collaboratively. This exhibit will showcase how working so closely over the years the Provensen's styles became indistinguishable.

This exhibition is made possible in part by generous support from Random House / Golden Books Young Readers Group.
