100 original drawings by the 20th century’s most renown caricaturist. Charlie Chaplin, James Stewart, Rosalind Russell, Kirk Douglas, Vivien Leigh, George Segal, Julie Andrews, Ralph Steadman, Paul Conrad, Tim Curry, and other personalities from the worlds of film, theatre, opera, and television will be included, a number of which have never been exhibited before.
These pieces, spanning seven decades (from 1928 to 1998), show the range of techniques used by the artist as well as his evolution and experimentation from decade to decade. Every piece on display will also be for sale, including seven color pieces for the magazines American Mercury and Redbook, six illustrations from the S.J. Perelman books Listen to the Mockingbird and Swiss Family Perelman, and a group portrait of the first seven Dr. Who actors commissioned by PBS in 1990.
