Drawing Attention

The response to the Foundation’s Shop website has been gratifying. We are delighted that people want to see and learn of Hirschfeld’s prodigious output, and certainly his print oeuvre is among his most popular work, as so many people live with these prints. Probably the most often asked question since we have launched the site is when will original drawings be available? We always knew that it would be in the near future, so we are happy to announce the time is now.

Hirschfeld by the Book

There are at least fifteen book collections of Hirschfeld art that have been published over the years, but it would take a good sized library to include all the books that have featured his drawings either in their pages or on their covers. How many of us have one or more of the annual Best Plays series where Hirschfeld theater drawings appeared for fifty years? Or the classic history of the Algonquin, The Vicious Circle, which includes individual portraits of all the Round Table members, and whose dust jacket is covered with those drawings.

Hirschfeld and the Algonquin Continues

If you missed the five-month long celebration of The Hirschfeld Century at the famed Algonquin Hotel you missed something special. To spend time in that historic lobby surrounded by Hirschfeld art from his nine-decade career was something truly unique. Guests of course loved it, and there was a steady stream of off the street traffic as well to take it all in. It was something to see the place where the historic Round Table was, and above it, Hirschfeld’s classic portrait of the Algonquin wits.
