The King of Line Drawings

Al Hirschfield, also known as the king of line drawing made hundreds of caricature portraits for the Ne Yorker. The man is able to capture the spirit of his subjects with a minimum of lines. Even though I am not a particularly big fan of the caricature genre, this is something else. Striking and very very fluid. Heavily influenced by Japanese and European graphic artists (it seems to me) His own influence is big, major even.
There's a documentary about his life and work. This is a site whit a huge gallery of portraits. Enjoy!
