Adapted posthumously from the circa 1962 original oil on canvas.

In 1963, Ted Geisel donated a circa 1962 painting from his La Jolla Birdwomen series to a charity auction benefiting the La Jolla Art Center. This prized artwork titled Mrs. Norilee Schneelock Poured, Miss Nesselroda Sugared, or Raising Money for the Arts in La Jolla, won the top auction bid of the night, more than was paid for a Cézanne drawing. It was the one the few times Ted offered one of his “Midnight Paintings” for sale.

(A second state of 495 prints on paper is reserved to raise money for arts organizations.)
