When this caricature from the Ambassador Hotel's Field & Turf Room went to auction, it was listed as "songwriters." I'm going to make an educated guess, here, that the person on the left is Al Dubin and the man at the piano is Harry Warren. Both men would have worked at Warner Bros. (at the time this was painted) and were responsible for the vast majority of songs featured in the Busby Berkeley movies of the early to mid 1930s. Dubin was a lyricist and Warren was a composer. Their songs together included 42nd Street, The Gold Digger's Song (We're in the Money), Lullaby of Broadway, I Only Have Eyes for You, etc. (Bizarre Los Angeles)
