Making Faces: Memoirs of a Caricaturist

Aline Fruhauf, With Seven Locks Press $19.95 (254p) ISBN 978-0-932020-46-8
Fruhauf's caricatures most often exhibit a puckish charm, as in her sketches of Harpo Marx, Andres Segovia and Maurice Ravel. But her pen can be devastating as well: Martha Graham's self-preoccupation and George Gershwin's brio and ambition have rarely been captured so well. Her pictures are occasionally profound: portraits of Igor Stavinsky and Aldous Huxleyreveal a witty, dark caricaturist who can claim to be heir to a tradition that extends from Goya to Picasso. Peppered with reproductions of her sketches for Vanity Fair, Musical America, Vogue and New York dailies, this gracefully written memoir limns a determined woman who penetrated the worlds of fashion, music, art and theater to create images that ""talked back'' to her, and that speak to us.
