Best known for his luscious paintings of pies and ice-cream cones, California artist Wayne Thiebaud (born 1920) has been an avid and prolific draftsman since he began his career as an illustrator and cartoonist.
To mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of the publication of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic story The Little Prince, the Morgan presents five newly discovered drawings by the author as well as intimate memorabilia from his time in New York during the 1940s.
Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan’s collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it.
