In 1961, Saul Steinberg created an extraordinary graffiti decoration of the atrium of the Palazzina Mayer in Milan, commissioned by Studio BBPR overseeing the renovation of the building. It was an important work that followed other similar projects the great draftsman and illustrator had undertaken in the United States over the previous decade.

Saul Steinberg, a Romanian American artist, gained fame for his humorous illustrations in The New Yorker. However, his life was marked by adversity. Facing antisemitism in Romania, his family moved to Milan in 1933 where he worked briefly as an illustrator until Mussolini’s antisemitic ideas forced him to leave. After completing his architectural degree, he sought refuge in the Dominican Republic and began sending illustrations to US periodicals. By the time he arrived in New York City in 1942, his drawings were already a regular feature in The New Yorker. Steinberg became a US citizen and continued collaborating with The New Yorker while exhibiting his art worldwide. In 2021, the OSU Museum of Art received a significant donation of Steinberg’s work, showcased in the Line of Thought exhibition. Line of Thought explores the contrasts between the adversity Steinberg faced and the witty, satirical art he produced.

Jessica R. Feldman’s Saul Steinberg’s Literary Journeys

Saul Steinbergs Literary Journeys

Published by the University of Virginia Press, Charlottesville, Virginia and London, in 2021, Jessica R. Feldman’s Saul Steinberg’s Literary Journeys, the first book-length study of Steinberg’s art and its relation to literature, explores his complex literary roots, particularly his fondness for modernist aesthetics and iconography. The Steinberg who emerges is an artist of far greater depth than has been previously recognized.

Feldman begins with Steinberg as a reader and writer, including surveying his personal library. She considers the practice of modernist parody as the strongest affinity between Steinberg and the two authors he repeatedly claimed as his “teachers”—Vladimir Nabokov and James Joyce. Viewing Steinberg’s art in tandem with readings of selected works by Nabokov and Joyce, Feldman illuminates the fascinating bonds between Steinberg and these writers, from their tastes for popular culture to their status as mythmakers, émigrés, and perpetual wanderers. Feldman also relates Steinberg’s uniquely literary art to a host of other authors, including Rimbaud, Baudelaire, Flaubert, Gogol, Tolstoy, and Defoe.

Generously illustrated with the artist’s work and drawing on invaluable archival material from The Saul Steinberg Foundation, this innovative fusion of literary history and art history allows us to see anew Steinberg’s iconic art.

Saul Steinberg: Modernist Without Portfolio at the Parrish Art Museum. November 10, 2019 – April 2021

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.















Saul Steinberg: Imagined Interiors at Pace Gallery. March 23, 2020 – April 6, 2020

Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) redefined the possibilities of drawing, casting it as a philosophical investigation, “a way of reasoning on paper.” His ingenious experiments with drawing and other media, including photography, collage, and sculpture, earned him critical acclaim as a modernist artist in the post-war period, while his numerous drawings and covers for The New Yorker made him dear to a broad American public—the people whose daily lives and customs became the subject of his art.
