Exhibition poster featuring the works of Romanian-American artist, Saul Steinberg, (1914-1999), from the Louisiana exhibit, Steinberg, in 1968. The exhibition featured Steinberg's drawings and collages from 1955-1967 and highlighted Steinberg's virtuosity in the use of a wide range of media - often in the same work: Pencil, colored pencil, charcoal, oil, gouache, watercolor and collage.
Steinberg's drawings were characterized by satire and irony and at the same time devotion - and always with a mastered virtuosity. In many works he explored social and political systems, and human challenges.
Before the persecution of Jews caused him to emigrate to the United States, Steinberg studied architecture in Milan and had satirical drawings published in, among other things, the magazine, Bertoldo. In 1941, Steinberg traveled to New York, where he was recognized for his drawings in the magazine, The New Yorker. His drawings also found their way into the international magazines, Vogue, Fortune and Harpers Bazaar.
Saul Steinberg decorated the American pavilion in Brussels in 1958 and he exhibited around the world – including several times at Maeght in Paris.
