The Joseph Mordecai Hirschmann Collection

A Charlestonian who attended both the College of Charleston and the School of Architecture of the University of Pennsylvania, Joseph Mordecai Hirschmann practiced architecture with the New York firm of Walker and Gillette. His architectural training induced a special interest in old world buildings, and on his European holidays in 1924 and 1927 he made numerous sketches in watercolor, conte and pencil of buildings and ruins in Italy, France and North Africa. In addition to those sketches, this collection also includes numerous renderings of architectural details observed during those travels.
