Variety is reporting that Tim Burton will be joining some of the most respected artists of the world with when his art exhibit opens up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York this November.
The show will include more than 700 pieces: paintings, drawings, storyboards, maquettes, puppets and other work created or designed by Burton. MoMA will also screen a complete retrospective of the helmer’s 14 films over the course of the show.
In addition, MoMA will present a series of films that influenced or inspired the helmer, including James Whale’s 1931 “Frankenstein,” Robert Wiene’s silent 1920 horror film “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” and Roger Corman’s 1961 “The Pit and the Pendulum.”
Cinephiles will also have a chance to view Burton’s earliest nonpro films and student art, on display for the first time.
… Hmm, Makes you wonder if half his sketches will just be the work of Edward Gorey redrawn with Burton’s Pen…
