Lou Hirshman

“Nikita Khrushchev” – 1963

Click on image for an enlargement.

In 1963, the most recent Hirshman caricature of a public figure was his 1956 portrayal of Charlie Chaplin. But with the Cold War between the West and East having cooled down the previous year when it threatened to become a hot one, President Kennedy, Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev were in-the-news leaders too ripe for caricature for Hirshman to ignore. His rendering of Khrushchev was an exercise in simplicity, requiring just a minimum of objects to bring the Soviet boss to life. While hard to recognize in this photo, his mouth is the head of a plunger (also used in Hirshman’s caricature of Mussolini) and the ornament in his lapel included the hammer and sickle of the Soviet flag.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my
    kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
