Additional Details

"By the time Dr. Seuss arrived in Paris in 1926, the surrealist movement had already become a force with its first group show Exposition Surréaliste taking place in 1925. Joan Miró and Paul Klee would show solo in Paris that year, then Yves Tanguy in 1927. Ted, in the right place at the right time, considered Paris the exhilarating axis of his world and absorbed anything the arts offered. This early and powerful influence of surrealism stayed with Ted throughout his life and is realized here in Alley Cat for a Very Long Alley"--The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection (drseussart.com).
