So we are going to Chicago this weekend for the Ultimate Lego World Build and we will be checking out some art that Babar the Elephant enjoys in his personal museum. The above picture courtesy of Laurent De Brunhoff. In case you want to find the other works of art featured in Babar's Museum of Art, I have included a table that lists what current museum these works are featured and the page number in the book the work appears. Because I am a huge dork.
