Children’s book illustrator Peter Sís was recently awarded the Mazza Medallion, which is given to those whose superior work exemplifies diversity of art style and technique.
The Mazza Museum of International Art from Children’s Books presented the first medallion in 1996. It has been awarded ever other year since, with Sís’ medal representing the tenth.
Sís has also won the New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year Award eight times. Three of his books, including “Starry Messenger,” “Tibet Through the Red Box” and “The Wall” have received Caldecott Honor Medals. In 2003 he was named a MacArthur Fellow, and in 2012 he was the recipient of the international Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration.
Sís’ work has included stippling, watercolors, oils and other techniques and mediums.
