The only known Maurice Sendak mural will be on display at the Free Library of Philadelphia starting June 11th.  The Chertoff Mural was painted in 1961 for the children of Sendak's friends Lionel and Roslyn Chertoff in their New York City apartment.  The Chertoff children donated the mural to the Rosenbach Museum and Library in 2008.
