The Morgan Library & Museum holds the original manuscript and art for one of the world’s most widely read and cherished books, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince (1943). Writing in exile during the second World War, Saint-Exupéry distilled his experience as a pilot into the unforgettable fictive landscape of The Little Prince – a world of wise creatures, headstrong plants, and lovely, lonesome deserts. The exhibition will tell this beloved story through Saint-Exupéry’s remarkable watercolors, drawings, manuscript drafts, along with photographs, portraits, non-fiction writing, and personal effects.
