Sammy Davis.
Lithograph, 18x15 inches. Artist's proof, signed by Hirschfeld and annotated "AP 5/30" in pencil, lower margin.
"Sammy Davis was on the stage at the age of four or five. He's perfected his craft, and knows exactly every move he's making. He looks like a Mobius strip with a bow tie here, but it shows his own economy of line , his smoothness, and his thinness on stage. Plus the great expressiveness of his face - sort of controlled manic." HOL/332
