Al Hirschfeld: Caricaturist to the Stars

April 1 – September 11, 2022

Al Hirschfeld (1903-2003) started his career at the age of 17 and continued drawing to the end of his life. During his eight-decade career, Hirschfeld gained fame by illustrating the actors, singers, and dancers of Broadway plays, films, and popular entertainment. His portfolio reads as a who’s who of 20th-century entertainers.

Drawn from the Nocciolino collection, the exhibition features 20 original large prints of Hirschfeld’s drawings of well-known performers. Many of the prints contain his signature “Nina” motif hidden in the design, a sly reference to his daughter that became a national obsession.
