"Hirschfeld's Hollywood showcases Hirschfeld's nine decades of film art for the first time. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, the book is illustrated with more than 100 marvelous drawings, paintings, collages, posters, billboards, murals, and other ephemera. Included are classic caricatures and behind-the-scenes perspectives of stars, directors, and producers, all executed in Hirschfeld's sinuous line, as well as vibrantly colored works that will be new to many of the artist's fans. Whether Laurel and Hardy or the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin or Fred Astaire, Cary Grant or Marlon Brando, Goldie Hawn or Julia Roberts, Walt Disney or Steven Spielberg - this book captures Hollywood as only Hirschfeld could portray it.".
