Saul Steinberg: Modernist Without Portfolio

NOW ON VIEW


Famed worldwide for giving graphic definition to the postwar age, Saul Steinberg (American, b. Romania, 1914–1999) was renowned for the covers, drawings, and cartoons that appeared in The New Yorker for nearly six decades. He was equally acclaimed for the drawings, paintings, prints, collages, and sculptures he exhibited internationally in galleries and museums. Steinberg crafted a rich and ever-evolving idiom that found full expression through these parallel careers, making no distinction between high and low art, which he freely mingled.
