Saul Steinberg : illuminations by Joel Smith( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 757 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
Steinberg at the New Yorker by Joel Smith( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 608 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 Joel Smith's essay, the first to draw on unpublished material in Steinberg's papers, explores the remarkable range and unceasing evolution of a major American modernist - one whose art reached a grateful public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 )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and Italian and held by 521 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
