The formal studies of the two men are separated. According to the
Gale biography series, Sendak was educated at the Art Students'
League, New York, NY, 1949-51. Sendak, who was born in 1928, is still
living in Connecticut.
And Étienne Delessert, who's Swiss, was educated at College
Classique, Lausanne, 1951-56, and Gymnase Classique, Lausanne,
1957-58. Delessert is younger, being born in 1941. Delessert is
married to an American, Rita Marshall, and lives in both Connecticut
and Lausanne, Switzerland -- so perhaps there's a link there.
We could provide contact information for both gentlemen, should you
wish to make a query through their publisher or agent.
The Google search strategy below doesn't find much of a link, mostly
noting books in which both of their works appear:
Sendak + Delessert
