The Master's Studio

Know a budding young illustrator or caricature artist? Take him or her to see the actual drafting table and famous barber's chair of the Master himself Al Hirschfeld. His studio has been reconstructed in the lobby of the Performing Arts Library at Lincoln Center. Thousands of pen-and-ink caricatures of dancers, actors and Celebrities, originated in this humble table and chair. Probably the whole history of performing arts in the 20th century recorded for posterity in his masterpieces. Inspire another one to follow. Take your kids to see this loving tribute.
