Here is another example of art in art by Hirshman. In this case, the “Old Bachelor,” more of a dirty old man, is looking at decently Hirshman-painted nudes in a book on his lap. Hirshman intimates there is more going on than meets the eye – the left hand has disappeared under the book between his legs. This could explain the odd look of the lecher’s face with its centipede mouth and squiggly chin.
