Some famous subjects photographed by Karsh were Muhammad Ali, Joan Baez, Humphrey Bogart, Alexander Calder, Winston Churchill, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Dizzy Gillespie, Ernest Hemingway, Audrey Hepburn, Chuck Jones, Grace Kelly, John F. Kennedy, The Marx Brothers, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Frank Lloyd Wright, Queen Elizabeth II, and Jim Henson.
