Maurice Sendak watercolour painting to exceed $25,000 at Hake's?

A watercolour painting by Where the Wild Things Are author and illustrator Maurice Sendak is the headline lot of an online auction at Hake's.

Bidding starts at $25,000, with the sale due to close on July 17.

Sendak produced the watercolour for a TV version of Prokofiev's For the Love of Three Oranges

The piece was painted in 1985 for a TV version of Prokofiev's opera For the Love of Three Oranges and is one of very few paintings by Sendak on the market.

In November last year, a Mickey Mouse moneybank from the Maurice Sendak collection of Disneyania made $28,750 at Hake's.
