Rediscovering the fun of a childhood favorite is a real joy. "Drawing Barbar: Early Drafts and Watercolors," explores the genesis of the favorite French Elephant and builds a story of the father and son duo that made it all happen. Above you see Barbar getting a suited up. Seems that lesson had a lasting effect on us.
The Morgan Library hosts theshow, which will remain open through January 4. Antiques and the Arts has a wonderful descriptive write-up of the exhibition and background on Barbar today. Certainly worth the read.
