All the worlds a caricature
Monday Cartoon Day.
Last week, I hadn't managed to scan in all of my Hirschfeld Mercury covers. So here's the rest of them. A rare look at Hirschfeld's color work. I am still hoping for more books collecting Hirschfeld's fifty year long output. How about a book of reviews combined with his excellent stage scenes. As a theatre student I would love to have such an historic document. To have the first reviews of Waiting for Godot together with Hirschfeld's group scene (if there was any)...?
As I said last time, at one point during Hirschfeld's run, his place was taken by the cartoon editor. My guess is, he didn't finish his own contribution in time, due to his busy schedule and rising fame. Still, whatever the reason, Hirschfeld complaied and retunred to the covers himself. Maybe the curator for the Hirschfeld museum, who posted a reply the last time I displayed some Hirschfeld material, can chime in.
