Aerosmith by Al Hirschfeld

Al Hirschfeld, the Line King, at the New York Historical Society

He lived 99 years, 1903 - 2003, and was drawing Hollywood and Broadway stars until the very end, along the way elevating caricature to an artform. Now the celebrated illustrator Al Hirschfeld, known as the Line King, is getting an exhibit at the New York Historical Society.

In The Hirschfeld Century, a tidy 100 of his greatest works, including both black-and-white and the rare color piece, will be displayed at the New York Historical Society, in addition to paintings, studies, video, and ephemera.
