Lou Hirshman

“Leopold Stokowski” – 1939

Click on image for an enlargement.

“Caricature” is almost too frivolous of a word to describe Hirshman’s 1939 presentation of the well-known flamboyant conductor Leopold Stokowski, musical director of the Philadelphia Orchestra (the city where Hirshman lived most of his life). Here was an almost-certainly unique innovation in the field of  3D “construction” in a 2D format. The glass that usually only functions to cover and protect the artwork actually became the artwork. Hirshman, who at one time could only find a job tediously painting designs on porcelain plates, here painted Stokowski’s distinctive body on the inside of the glass cover with the conductor’s face and hands of delicate feathers and wicker-woven hair recessed and attached to the backboard of the piece.

This creation, painstakingly crafted, actually had to be created twice. Hirshman’s son, while playing livingroom soccer with his dog, accidentally sent a sneaker flying that hit the Stokowski caricature hanging on the wall and breaking the glass – Hirshman’s only piece where the glass covering was the art itself .

    Right now it looks like WordPress is the best blogging platform
    out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using
    on your blog?

    Hey there outstanding website! Does running a blog similar to this require a
    massive amount work? I have absolutely no knowledge of programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

    Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off subject however I simply needed to ask.

    Thanks a lot!
