The artist behind the beloved book series "Madeline" is in the spotlight at the New York Historical Society.
"Madeline in New York: The Art of Ludwig Bemelmans" is an exhibit that celebrates Madeline's 75th anniversary with more than 90 pieces of art.
Although the series is based in Paris, Bemelmans was living in New York when he wrote and illustrated the books.
"Madeline is such a special character, she just speaks to me of bravery and adventure and that can-do American spirit that we America girls all aspire to," said curator Jane Bayard Curley.
The collection will be on display through mid-October.
