Al Hirschfeld and icons from American TV, film and Broadway went together like a horse-and-carriage.
Hirschfeld’s simple black and white line drawings were fixtures in the Arts section of the Sunday New York Times for decades.
Any actor or actress knew they made it when Hirschfeld put pen to paper.
One interesting tidbit regarding Hirschfeld’s drawings is that from 1945 to his death in 2003 he hid the name of his daughter “Nina” somewhere in the drawing.
Locating her name became a guessing game for fans.
Can you find “Nina” in the the snapshot below?
