New York Post, Page Six, Thursday, January 9, 2014:
Al Hirschfeld Art To Replace Woody Allen at Golden Globe Awards!

woody allen

Inset: Hirschfeld's three dimensional drawing of Woody Allen.

“Blue Jasmine” director WOODY ALLEN won’t be onstage to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday’s GOLDEN GLOBES — but a piece of AL HIRSCHFELD art  depicting Allen from the vaults of the MARGO FEIDEN GALLERIES LTD. will be.

The Greenwich Village gallery was contracted to provide an iconic image of Allen from Hirschfeld’s archives, sources tell Page Six. The image that will appear onstage at the Beverly Hilton is an Al Hirschfeld lithograph that shows Woody Allen contemplating a flower. Allen’s longtime pal and “Annie Hall” star DIANE KEATON will accept the honor for him alongside the Hirschfeld art.

Hirschfeld was famous for hiding the name of his daughter, “Nina,” in his intricate illustrations. This one has two.

Al Hirschfeld Vintage Black Cinema Postage Stamp

ABOUT THE AL HIRSCHFELD POSTAGE STAMP

On July 16, 2008 the United States Postal Service issued five stamps to honor “Vintage Black Cinema.” Included in these commemorate stamps is Hirschfeld’s 1929 poster for the movie Hallelujah—one of the first major-studio films (MGM) to feature an all-black cast.

This dramatic story of a field laborer who is seduced away from his community by worldly temptations was filmed primarily in Arkansas and Tennessee. Noted for its portrayal of the rural African-American religious experience, Hallelujah earned King Vidor a nomination for Best Director.

al hirschfeld at his drawing board

Twelve years ago, Al Hirschfeld completes his watercolor for Oklahoma!, to herald its opening on Broadway on March 21, 2002. Hirschfeld’s Drawing-in-color, published in The New York Times, features Patrick Wilson, Jessica Boevers, Aasif Mandvi, Shuler Hensley, Andrea Martin, Justin Bohon, and Josefina Gabrielle.

If you look closely at Al Hirschfeld’s board, you can see that he has already completed the Drawing in pencil underneath his Drawing in watercolor.

Many of the actors, producers, and many of the creative team, wanted to purchase this Drawing from me, but Patrick Wilson called me even before this Hirschfeld Drawing was dry on its board!
