Interior of Sardi's

Dublin Core

Title Interior of Sardi's
Description Alex Gard, the artist originally hired to draw caricatures of the famous guests at Sardi's, was a Russian refugee who agreed to work in exchange for free meals. He sat in the restaurant producing brilliant caricatures for nearly 20 years, and although Sardi eventually offered to pay him, Gard never accepted anything but a meal.
