Description

Al Hirschfeld's line drawings are synonymous with the American theatre, but his work for Hollywood films is also gaining attention. His ability was to channel personality and character into simple line but, in addition to his monochromatic line drawings, this book includes his movie posters which, with their brilliant colour palettte, offer an interesting contrast to his more familiar work. Hirschfeld's career started at Goldwyn pictures in the 1920s and remained with MGM for 30 years. His Hollywood career unfolds in this book in striking reproductions of his work for now-classic films, from "The Alamo", "The Wizard of Oz" and "Singin' in the Rain" to "The Manchurian Candidate" and "Saving Private Ryan". It also includes his drawings of stars from Laurel and Hardy to Fred Astaire to Julia Roberts and renderings of his own unique behind-the-scenes perspective for films such as "Irma la Douce".
