Maurice Sendak ( June 10, 1928 – May 8, 2012 ) widely considered the most important children’s book artist of the 20th century, who wrenched the picture book out of the safe, sanitized world of the nursery and plunged it into the dark, terrifying and hauntingly beautiful recesses of the human psyche, died on Tuesday. He was 83. His work was the subject of critical studies and major exhibitions; in the second half of his career, he was also renowned as a designer of theatrical sets.
