Beverly Sills.
Etching, 10x123/4 inches oblong, full margins. Signed by Hirschfeld and numbered 194/200 in pencil, lower margin. 1983.
"Beverly's so full of joy and has such a wonderful smile and is so open and easy in her performance, as in real life - characteristics which make someone a delight to draw. If a performer is electric on stage, chances are that electricity will translate into the drawing. Here she is making a grand entrance in the kind of dress you only get to wear on an opera stage or at state dinners these days. Which is probably a lot of the fun of being a diva." HOL/198
