Exhibition Overview

Madeline at 75: The Art of Ludwig Bemelmans

November 15 - February 22, 2015

To mark the anniversary of everyone's favorite schoolgirl, Madeline, this exhibition celebrates Ludwig Bemelmans's legacy. Drawings from each of the six Madeline books will be on view, plus a generous cross-section of his other artwork for children and adults. A Bemelmans bar brought back from Paris, delightful fabric designs, and memorabilia like the Bad Hat's original hat are just a few of the treasures that will be on view.
