A Renaissance man of boundless imagination, artist and author Edward St. John Gorey (American, 1925–2000) published more than one hundred works and had a profound affection for ballet, literature, film, and animals. Perhaps best known for the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery!, Gorey designed sets and costumes for the stage, including a Broadway production of Edward Gorey’s Dracula that won two Tony Awards. Cats and men in fur coats make frequent appearances in his artwork, as do exotic and quirky creatures known only in the meticulous crosshatched drawings emanating from his pen. All of Gorey’s characters inhabit an enigmatic, often vaguely Edwardian world, where human foibles and frailties are deftly portrayed.
