Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile and Friends: The Art of Bernard Waber

March 18 - June 8, 2014
East Gallery

Bernard Waber was a born storyteller and nimble, elegant draughtsman with mischief to spare. In the more than two dozen picture books he created between 1961 and 2010, Waber reveled in life’s little surprises while quietly insisting on the importance of friendship and family. A crocodile for a house guest? A lion named Shirley Williamson? Why not! The exhibition featured 85 original illustrations from Waber’s classic picture books as well as a sampling of his work as a designer at Time Inc. and Condé Nast. 

Curated by Leonard Marcus. 

Support for this exhibition was generously provided by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
