(A) Al Hirshfeld
Al Hirschfeld has been synonymous with Broadway since his first theatre drawing appeared in 1926. For seventy-six years, his theatre work was as much a part of a Broadway show as its opening night. His drawings, seen most famously in the New York Times, where his drawings appeared on average every other week for seventy-five years, reached all over the country, and millions more saw his vision of the shows than saw the shows themselves. The two volumes of The American Theatre as seen by Hirschfeld
showcases Hirschfeld's greatest theater art from nine decades covering Show Boat
. When the first volume of The American Theatre was published in 1961, Hirschfeld designed and curated the book, featuring 250 works from the first four decades of his career. This new second volume covers the other forty years of Hirschfeld's career with nearly 300 drawings.
