Remarkably, Amsel's creative output dominated the full spectrum of entertainment -- music was no exception. Amsel possessed a special affinity for capturing large personalities in his work, as well as great sensitivity in drawing women. And no women were larger personalities than his most frequent subjects: Liza Minelli, Lily Tomlin, Barbra Streisand, and -- of course -- Bette Midler. 


What many people don't realize is that Amsel came to know a number of his subjects personally, and forged friendships as well as professional relationships. Often he sought out such figures. They, in turn, recognized the artist's talent and reciprocated their admiration.


As with all of Amsel's early work, it's challenging to find quality images that are of decent resolution, or of physical products that aren't damaged with age.
