Ex-voto, after 1983. Pencil on paper, 10 ¾ 14 in. Saul Steinberg Papers, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University. Caption: “I talk to my nose about childhood. My nose remembers odors from times when I was too young to understand that I was memorizing. ‘That was rosemary,’ he tells me. Or, remember the pine forest in August 1924? How about that other odor. Mushrooms! he answers.”
