Celebrity Caricature in America
By Wendy Wick Reaves

Mae West, George Gershwin, the Marx Brothers, Babe Ruth, and many other celebrities were eloquently caricatured in popular American periodicals over the first half of the twentieth century. Introduced here is this overlooked type of portraiture featuring work by such masters of the art as Al Hirschfeld, Miguel Covarrubias, Al Frueh, Ralph Barton, and Marius de Zayas, much of it illustrated in color.
