Elephant and Cow Original Drawing


Artist: Maurice Sendak


SENDAK, Maurice. Elephant and Cow Original Drawing. Original pencil drawing on tracing paper of an elephant and a cow. The image covers nearly all of the 10.5” x 6” sheet. Signed by the artist, Caldecott Medalist Maurice Sendak, in pencil.

An original pencil drawing by the Caldecott Medalist Maurice Sendak of an elephant and a cow. Most likely done as a study for a more elaborate drawing, Sendak’s typical humor shines through in this image as he has drawn the elephant casting a dubious glance back at the cow, who glares back at something off the page. A comic piece of original Sendak artwork!
