expressed sympathy at the passing of Mr. Hirschfeld, and to those
who have paid such great homage to his work.
We ask for your patience as we try to personally answer all the correspondence we receive.
Dear Clients & Visitors to our Gallery:
On Friday, January 17, Al Hirschfeld signed his final edition of lithographs. It was this Charlie Chaplin, shown walking away, inspired by the close of many Chaplin silent films in which Chaplin strode away from the viewer. Its title:

and whosoever shall read this,
again I was met with the adventure of selecting a gift for your
birthday on June 21st. This became a more daunting job
than it would seem: You and I have been together for 33 yearsso
that's been, how many presents so far? Thirty-two birthday presents,
33 half-birthday presents (a tradition between us), and many Chanukah
giftsa total of almost 100 gifts in all. The first one (remember?)
was an electric pencil sharpener that would light up and sing while
it sharpened. More recently I gifted you with one of those gripper
things that you could use to pick up the personal letters you writewhich
by habit get thrown on the floor of your studio until they are ready
stamped and mailed.
now, completely out of ideas for more gadgets and gifts, I awakened
one morning with an idea, and so: the Gallery asked our favorite
friends and clients to record their birthday wishes for you and
the world to see and hear. When we began deciding whom to invite
onto the website, we found our cup gushing over, and for this reasonand
because all birthdays should be celebrated for at least a
yearwe've decided to keep these felicitations and personal
anecdotes online for this year, adding to them
is my gift. My birthday wishes are the total of those that you will
and then some.
yesand when you've finished listening to all your accolades,
you can go to our Online Gallery and look at all your work!
