520    If you've ever read Oh, the Places You'll Go!, The Cat in 
       the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, or any of the dozens of books
       written and illustrated by Theodor Geisel, you may think 
       you're familiar with the work of the man who delighted 
       millions as "Dr. Seuss." But the wildly imaginative 
       creations collected in these pages show a previously 
       unseen dimension of Geisel's art. These fabulous and 
       whimsical paintings, created for his own pleasure and 
       never before shown to the public, will enchant and amaze 
520 8  These fantastical images have the inimitable style of 
       Geisel's alter ego Dr. Seuss, frequently depicting 
       outlandish creatures in otherworldly settings. The puckish
       Seuss humor is in evidence, as well as the insight that 
       often gave his stories deeper meaning. But these paintings
       break new ground, using a dazzling rainbow of hues not 
       seen in the primary-color palette of Geisel's books for 
       children. The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss exhibits a 
       sophisticated, technically accomplished, and often quite 
       unrestrained side of Geisel's talent. As his widow, Audrey
       Geisel, writes in her eloquent note to the collection: "I 
       remember telling Ted that there would come a day when 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."
