Writers who drew, they all seemed to draw the same way. They managed to keep that childlike creativity in their line.

|Profession:||Artist, Caricaturist, Painter|
Albert Hirschfeld was an American caricaturist best known for his simple black and white portraits of celebrities and Broadway stars. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, he moved with his family to New York City where he received his art training at the Art Students League of New York. In 1924, Hirschfeld traveled to Paris and London, where he studied painting, drawing and sculpture. When he returned to the United States, a friend, fabled Broadway press agent, Richard Maney, showed one of Hirschfeld's drawings to an editor at the New York Herald Tribune, which got Hirschfeld commissions for that newspaper and then, later, The New York Times. Hirschfeld started young and continued drawing to the end of his life, thus chronicling nearly all the major entertainment figures of the 20th century.
