Lou Hirshman

“John D. Rockefeller” – 1935

Click on image for enlargement.

In 1935, John D. Rockefeller was the richest man in US, having made it big in the petroleum business with Standard Oil. As the Great Depression strangled the nation in the 1930s, the 30-year-old Hirshman found the first subject for his caricature period. Here was a capitalist of the first degree whose wealth contrasted starkly with the economic woes of the country and whose profile was ripe for the drilling of Hirshman’s wit. The rock shale of Rockefeller’s cap and jacket was an oily pun on his name. His taut skin in slight relief was “carved” out of a sandstone-like material of Hirshman’s own making. The result was a stone-cold visage in profile, immediately recognizable in this era of poverty as Rockefeller, surrounding the focal point of this well-heeled subject – a dime for an eye.

    The dime has another signiicance — John D. Rockefeller was famous (I’d say infamous) for the gift he would give to people who he met — a shiny new dime.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Howdy! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I
    had to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of
    work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and
    views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

    I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading very slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
