Subject: [teacherartexchange] Al Hirschfeld
For those of you with older students here is a wonderful resource:
(my daughter used to count the "Ninas" in the characatures when she was little...)
<<For almost 75 years in The New York Times, Al Hirschfeld's line drawings captured the vividness of American theater. A self-described "characterist," Hirschfeld (1903 - 2003) said his contribution was to take the character, created by the playwright and portrayed by the actor, and to reinvent it for the reader. His drawings, which often appeared before a show opened, gave many readers their first look at Broadway's newest offerings. This archive is a selection of works published in The Times. >>
