He was also an art critic for the Carnegie Hall house program, where this particular drawing may have appeared. In all he published more than 4000 drawings until his death at the age of 94 in 2011. Fine, shrinkwrapped with a cardboard backing on which Norkin has written his name, address, phone number, and an insurance value. Item #021496
