“Beatnik” – 1961

Click on image for an enlargement.

“Beatnik” is the first example of Hirshman producing caricatures not dealing with public figures (even in his 1949 “Self-caricature” he was a public figure among his peers). Instead, he started caricaturizing archetypes and stereotypes, in this case beatniks, who like their beat-generation predecessors and hippie successors, shunned the norm in dress (the checkers sunglasses) and music (harmonica mouth). While in no way a beatnik, Hirshman was still an artist who went his own way.

This is the first time Hirshman, who had always signed his name in block letters, used script, a form he would use several times over the coming decades.

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!
