Al Hirschfeld's Studio Tour

Legendary caricature artist Al Hirshfeld drew until his death in 2003 at the age of ninety-nine from the top floor of his studio in Manhattan on East 95th Street, sitting in a barber chair. For eight years his studio remained untouched until recently, when his widow needed to sell the studio. 

Courtesy of The New York Times, enjoy this short tour of the workspace of an icon in American art and someone whose work immortalized many artists.
