“King of TV” – 1967

Click on image for an enlargement.

Hirshman parodied the heyday of US commercial television in the person of the “King of TV,” the embodiment of an advertiser’s dream trapped in a boob tube of consumerism.

The King’s left sleeve includes a Hershey’s chocolate candy bar wrapper, probably a reference to the name Hirshman’s art students gave him – Mr. Hershey.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced
    blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
