Saul Steinberg : illuminations by Joel Smith( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best known for his barbed and brilliant art for The New Yorker, Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) did much more. He executed public murals, designed fabrics and stage sets, was an inventive collagist and printmaker, and turned his magic touch to the fields of painting, sculpture, advertising, and even wartime propaganda. This is the first comprehensive look at Steinberg's contribution to twentieth-century art, which was that of a modern-day illuminator, putting word and image in play to create art that spoke to the eyes, and minds, or readers." "An introduction by poet Charles Simic tracks the origins of Steinberg's darkly comic sensibility in the "Balkan bazaar" of the artist's native Romania. Joel Smith shows how architectural training and an early rise to fame as a cartoonist in fascist-era Milan honed Steinberg's gift for subtle graphic invention, and explores why one of the most visible, prolific, potent, and cosmopolitan careers in postwar American art has so thoroughly evaded serious study. Tracing the evolving motives that underlie Steinberg's multi-layered activity, this volume also raises fundamental questions about the historiography of modernism and the vexed status of "the middlebrow avant-garde" in an age of museum-bound art." "Previously unseen sketches, documents, and printed matter from the artist's papers illustrate the essay, career chronology, and entries for the works featured in this important book."--Jacket

The passport by Saul Steinberg( Book )

48 editions published between 1900 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition of The Passport is reason for all Steinberg fans to celebrate. When this remarkable book was first published twenty-five years ago, it was completely misunderstood. As John Hollander says in his introduction to the revised edition, "The Passport masqueraded as a cartoon book, and hardly a reviewer at the time understood the nature of the masquerade, or how this book was an artistic act and at the same time a witty and profound commentary on artistic action." This classic collection of over 350 illustrations can be seen as an autobiographical account of Steinberg's life in America, which began with his immigration to this country in 1942. The Passport contains Steinberg's now-famous visual paradies of legal documents filled with trompe l'oeil pictures and false signatures, and his travel impressions of Western Europe, the Middle East, the Middle West, Palm Beach, Istanbul, Manáos and Hollywood. The revised edition contains additional material dating from the period 1948 to 1954, and never before published. -- from front flap
Steinberg at the New Yorker by Joel Smith( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This richly illustrated volume opens with a captivating introduction by the artist's friend and colleague Ian Frazier. Joel Smith's essay, the first to draw on unpublished material in Steinberg's papers, explores the remarkable range and unceasing evolution of a major American modernist - one whose art reached a grateful public not from museum walls but from the pages of the periodical he called "my refuge, patria, and safety net." All eighty-nine of Steinberg's New Yorker covers appear in full color, as do many drawings that were printed inside the magazine when art was reproduced there only in black-and-white. Steinberg at The New Yorker assembles the artist's most beloved, intuitive, and brilliant inspirations. Wartime portfolios chronicle his tours of duty in China, India, North Africa, and Italy; in peacetime, the artist pays indelible visits to Hollywood, Moscow, Berlin, and Samarkand. He populates New York with stoical cats, precocious children, puzzled couples, and a menagerie of vivid grotesques. Thinkers grapple with demons of their own making; speakers speak past one another in the graphic dialects of street map and scribble. Words go on the warpath, numbers guard their secrets, and question marks an
The discovery of America by Saul Steinberg( Book )

14 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No sooner had he arrived on American shores in 1942 than Saul Steinberg embarked on an artistic journey of discovery: an exploration, in witty, sometimes disturbing, sometimes hilarious drawings, of this vast and diverse country. Over the decades Americans found themselves - in the pages of The New Yorker and in dozens of exhibitions and collections both public and private - revealed, dis-covered, by an artist endowed with a rare understanding of the national character
The labyrinth by Saul Steinberg( Book )

25 editions published between 1954 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his career, the acclaimed artist Saul Steinberg created a series of unique, wondrous books. Far richer than simple catalogs or collections of drawings, these carefully arranged works formed a kind of continuous visual autobiography--a record, in drawings both simple and detailed, comic and beautiful, of an inimitable mind's encounter with the world. The Labyrinth, first published in 1960 and long out of print, may be the best of these. Here is Steinberg, as he put it at the time, "discovering and inventing a great variety of events: Illusion, talks, music, women, cats, dogs, birds, the cube, the crocodile, the museum, Moscow and Samarkand (winter, 1956), other Eastern countries, America, motels, baseball, horse racing, bullfights, art, frozen music, words, geometry, heroes, harpies, etc." This edition, featuring all the original art along with new editorial material, will allow readers to discover (and invent) Steinberg's world all over again"--

Joe Gould's secret by Joseph Mitchell( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Ferdinand Gould - better known as Joe Gould - was a member of one of the oldest families in Massachusetts and a graduate of Harvard, and his parents took it for granted that he would go on to medical school and become a surgeon and a distinguished civic leader, as many of his ancestors, including his father and grandfather, had been. Instead, in 1916, in his middle twenties, he abruptly broke with his background and came to New York City and spent the next forty years living from hand to mouth in Greenwich Village as a kind of half outcast half bohemian hero. He said that he lived this way so that he could wander around the city at will listening to people and writing down some of the astonishing things he heard them say. He had become obsessed with the idea that talk is history and that even offhand remarks may have an eerie and prophetic historical import. He wrote in dime-store composition books, filling hundreds of them, and said that these books when eventually joined together would become an enormous book (a dozen times longer than the Bible, he estimated) that would be called An Oral History of Our Time. (Historians at Columbia University have given Gould credit for originating the term "oral history.")"--BOOK JACKET. "In 1942, Joseph Mitchell, impressed by Gould's concept, wrote a Profile of him for The New Yorker. Twenty-two years later, some time after Gould's death, he wrote another Profile of him and the two have been combined in Joe Gould's Secret."--BOOK JACKET
