Here is a copy of Audrey Seuss Geisel's letter on the release of the art of Dr. Seuss


I retain a most vivid picture of Ted standing in his studio before his easel, palette in hand, brush poised. He would lean forward and then back on his heels, head cocked to one side and then the other. This artistic "dance" step was repeated over and over again. He enjoyed working after midnight - seldom during the working-day hours. He did not consider painting to be "work," so it had to wait till late at night. Painting was what he did for himself and not something he felt comfortable in sharing. I recall a particular oil painting - now known as "A Plethora of Cats" - in which there are dozens upon dozens of cat heads of all different sizes. There was never an actual moment he could feel he had indeed finished - that is, he painted the last feline head. He would periodically step back and put it aside for a while. Then, inevitably, when the spirit again moved him - or he was on book hiatus - he would find room for just one more cat face. This happened over and over again. I have attempted to recall the very last cat face with special tenderness, but I cannot. 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. I am glad.
