Living Self-Portrait: Al Hirschfeld - National Portrait Gallery
Description:
This highlight comes from an interview of Al Hirschfeld on June 28, 1996, recorded as part of the National Portrait Gallery’s Living Self-Portrait Series. He was interviewed by then Senior Historian Marc Pachter. In this clip, Hirschfeld talks about the origin of including the name of his daughter “Nina” in his artwork and remarks on the public response that came along with it. The full interview is available for research by appointment within the Audio/Visual Archive.
