Approximately 120 works on paper and board, paintings, sculpture, and other objects by Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) reveal his intensely personal, humorous, and sharply observant view of 20th-century life. Steinberg's work gave graphic definition to the postwar age through a dozen books of drawings and hundreds of incisive illustrations for the New Yorker and other periodicals.
