Hirsh was often defined by artists and critics of art as a master, although he concentrated on drawing on paper in a small format. Hirsch presents us with a clear inner vision that reveals with painful acuity what we want so much to repress: our being vulnerable and imperfect human beings. This is a clear humanistic statement, which believes and sees the constant struggle of man as a subject of existential significance.
