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 one of the few times Ted offered one of his “Midnight Paintings” for sale.
