Saul Steinberg was a Romanian cartoonist and illustrator best known for his iconic contributions to The New Yorker magazine. Steinberg’s drawing style is characterized by a playful, childlike-doodle quality while also maintaining an elegant deftness that succinctly described a wide range of subjects. His quirky, sharply observed sketches, at times reminiscent of Dada art, also crossed over into the fine arts world. Along with Arshile Gorky and Robert Motherwell, Steinberg exhibited work at in the landmark “Fourteen Americans” show at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1948 and at the Betty Parsons Gallery, which was then at the center of the Abstract Expressionist movement. Born on June 15, 1914 in Râmnicu Sarat, Romania, Steinberg went on to study philosophy at the University of Bucharest but opted not to finish his degree, instead enrolling as an architecture student at the Politecnico di Milano in Milan. Steinberg fled Italy in 1941 with the rise of the anti-Semitic policies, eventually settling in the United States where the artist went on to create over 1,200 drawings for The New Yorker, including 87 covers. Steinberg died on May 12, 1999 in New York, NY. Related Categories Saul Steinberg prints. Saul Steinberg The New Yorker. Vintage Saul Steinberg. Navajo. American Indian. New Mexico. Motel.
