AL HIRSCHFELD, “MEMORIES OF ‘93”
Albert Hirschfeld (June 21, 1903 – January 20, 2003) was an American caricaturist best known for his black and white portraits of celebrities and Broadway stars. He was born in a two-story duplex at 1313 Carr Street in St. Louis, and later moved with his family to New York City, where he received his art training at the Art Students League of New York. In 1924, Hirschfeld traveled to Paris and London, where he studied painting, drawing and sculpture. When he returned to the United States, a friend, fabled Broadway press agent Richard Maney, showed one of Hirschfeld's drawings to an editor at the New York Herald Tribune, which got Hirschfeld commissions for that newspaper and then, later, The New York Times. Hirschfeld's style is unique, and he is considered to be one of the most important figures in contemporary drawing and caricature, having influenced countless artists, illustrators, and cartoonists. His caricatures were regularly drawings of pure line in black ink, for which he used a genuine crow quill.
This particular artwork is numbered 46 out of 100, and features celebrities such as Bette Midler, Buddy Smith, Clint Eastwood, David Letterman, Dennis Franz, Eddie Vedder, Ellen McLaughlin, Holly Hunter, Joan Miro, Kathleen Tracey, Luciano Pavarotti, Marian Anderson, Michael Cerveris, Nilas Martins, Placido Domingo, Roy Lichtenstein, Rudolf Nureyev, Vivien Leigh, and Billy Holiday.
