Description

An attractive copy of this large coffee table art book from 1970. This beautiful book contains 189 illustrations and 32 color plates under the headings: Early Lithographs, Theater, Movies, Television, Personalities, Unlikely Casting, Famous Feuds, Portrait of the Artist, and Around the World.

The World of Hirschfeld is a boundless area of people and places created by the artist's perception, imagination, wit, and great graphic talent. For decades readers of the Sunday New York Times caught the spirit of the new plays from the Hirschfeld drawings in the theatrical section. During these years the artist also made his unique visual comments on the other performing arts as well as on the world at large. For this volume Hirschfeld selected a representative collection of his drawings together with some of his superb portraits in color, presented for the first time in depth in this book. In addition, he has written a witty, acerbic account of his own experiences in the theatrical world, of his extensive travels, and of his working methods.
