Dr. Seuss was keenly aware of the many cultural and artistic movements which took shape throughout his career. In fact, his hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts hosted one of this country’s first surrealist exhibitions, which no doubt had a lifelong impact on Seuss. Myopic Woman is unmistakably Seuss, but at the same time is a nod and a wink to cubists Picasso and Braque, as well as surrealists Miro, Magritte, and Dali.
