Ella Fitzgerald.
Lithograph, 18x20 inches oblong. Artist's proof, signed by Hirschfeld and annotated "AP X/XV" in pencil, lower margin.
"Ella's laid-back stage presentation actually lends itself to an action drawing. Though she's at ease, with her elbow resting, the other hand casually holding the mike, she knows exactly what she wants to sing and how she's going to sing it. . . . I got a little cute here with the microphone cord blending into my signature. I never knew what to do with the darn cord. It was like a string hanging from your jacket." HOL/284
