Celebrity Doll History

Celebrity Dolls have been around since at least the 1800s. The best part about the art of Hollywood Dolls is that they are a part of history as seen through the eyes of other artists during their peak. Wikipedia has a little more information about celebrity dolls beginning with presidents, silent film stars, and more.

Per Wikipedia: A celebrity doll is a doll modeled after a celebrity.

The article concludes with an A-List of links to information about some of the celebrity dolls produced over the past twenty five years. Celebrity dolls have always been popular, but this particular class of Hollywood Doll is special in that it is an artist's one of a kind work of art, not mass produced. This unique art style is pop art representing pop culture at its best.
