The Midnight Paintings

“I remember telling Ted that there will come a day where many of his paintings would be seen and he would thus share with his fans another facet of himself, his private self. That day has come, and I am glad.”
– Audrey Geisel

The world knows Theodore “Dr. Seuss” Geisel as the American author that inspired generations to read. What most don’t know is that Dr. Seuss created a series of Midnight Paintings in addition to his well-known characters. These secret paintings served as creative outlets for the artist, sometimes inspiring his famous books. Like his collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy, Seuss never sold these paintings during his lifetime. He was firm that the children’s books were his career, and the paintings were a pass-time. It wasn’t until after his death, Audrey Geisel decided that the world needed to see this side of Seuss. As a result, The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection was created.Dr. Seuss working in his California studio in 1949.

In 1997, partnered with Chase Art Group, Audrey launched the Art of Dr. Seuss Project. Thus, Ted’s art was able to be shared with the world. These high-quality reproductions of Ted’s work has stayed as true to his originals as possible.
