With commentary throughout by Julie Andrews, John Russell, Cameron Mackintosh, Simon Callow, Ralph Steadman, Michael Blakemore, Louise Kerz Hirschfeld, Tony Walton, Lynn Redgrave, Barry Humphries, Peter Shaffer, Julie Christie, Kevin Brownlow, Nicholas Wright, Mel Gussow, Sheridan Morley, and Al Hirschfeld. That Al Hirschfeld drew New York and that Hirschfeld drew Hollywood is hardly news. But it will come as a revelation to even the artist's most ardent fans that in the Hirschfeld archive over five hundred works are dedicated to his British subjects. Until Louise Kerz Hirschfeld connected all the dots, evidence of the artist's life-long Anglomania had remained dispersed among hundreds of portfolios in different locations

Theater talk( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Theater Talk invited Pulitzer-Prize winning cartoonist, Art Spiegelman ("Maus") to interview the venerable theater caricaturist Al Hirschfeld at his studio in New York City. The two artists engage in wide-ranging conversation about the art of capturing a person's essence with line, as well as Hirschfeld's life and career. They begin by discussing early comic strips and the pioneering animated films of Winsor McCay. Hirschfeld discusses his desire to capture the "playwright's intention" via his theater drawings; learning to draw in the dark, and interpreting his theatrical "hieroglyphs" into finished drawings; his experience as a budding artist in Paris during the 1920s, and early assignments with the New York Times; and his perception of contemporary actors in comparison with stars of an earlier time, such as W.C. Fields, Carol Channing and Zero Mostel
