Saul Steinberg : illuminations by Joel Smith( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 758 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 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1941, a young Romanian escaped wartime Italy, where he had recently completed a degree in architecture, and began submitting cartoons to a weekly Manhattan magazine. For the next six decades, Saul Steinberg's covers, cartoons, features, and illustrations would be a defining presence at The New Yorker. As the magazine became a standard-bearer of taste and intelligence in American letters, Steinberg's drawings emerged as its visual epitome, and the artist gained recognition as one of the great originals of his epoch
The discovery of America by Saul Steinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in Italian and English and held by 478 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, a profound appreciation for the uniquely American interplay between landscape and culture, and an unsparing eye for the native illusions. Now, for the first time, almost two hundred of these extraordinary works have been assembled in a beautiful collection chosen and sequenced by the artist himself. Journeying through Steinberg's America we encounter that ubiquitous phenomenon, the parade; we visit the distinctive, low-lying small towns that dot the countryside, the canyons of New York, the twenty-four-hour carnival that is Las Vegas. Here are the monoliths of our geography, our banks and post offices; here the Flat Earth, California, street battles, visible noise, handmade pennies, Woman's Liberation, Art, Prosperity, and taxicabs; here the people - cowboys and cowgirls, cultural icons, "monopods," unidentifiable wanderers (Who Are They?) - who inhabit the land; here the biting allegories that lend a new dimension to our hectic political life; here the beloved and well-known images that brilliantly, economically sum up a place and an attitude (e.g., the famous map of the world from the New York perspective); and here, at journey's end, a lyrical watercolor that points the way to a more hopeful future. As the distinguished critic Arthur Danto says in his penetrating introduction to this remarkable collection: "Steinberg is our national treasure, his hand the hand through which the nation inscribes itself in order to discover its true soul."
