The Palitz Gallery, NYC
The Palitz Gallery is pleased to present Al Hirschfeld and Syracuse: A Most Talented Association, an exhibition that showcases the renowned artist’s signature calligraphic style through portraits of Syracuse University alumni. This selection of work by ‘the Line King’ (as he was described in a 1996 documentary film) will highlight original drawings and lithographs of distinguished graduates Jerry Stiller ‘50, Dick Clark ‘51, Morton Janklow ‘50, and Frank Langella ‘59, in addition to images of Peter Falk G’53, Suzanne Pleshette, and Vanessa Williams ‘08. Also on view will be a drawing for the 1972 Arthur Miller play The Creation of the World and other Business that lasted only 20 performances on Broadway, featuring Bob Dishy ‘55. Curated by Domenic Iacono, Director of the Syracuse University Art Galleries, the exhibition of over 12 original works from the Al Hirschfeld Foundation and private lenders will be on view February 17 through April 10th.
