A City on Paper: Saul Steinberg's New York. Dec 1, 2006 - Mar 27, 2007
Cartoonist Saul Steinberg and the city he saw.
Trained in architecture, a satirist by nature, and a peerless anthologist of graphic techniques, Saul Steinberg saw the city—its skyline, its people, its monuments and myths—as no one else ever has. A City on Paper: Saul Steinberg's New York brings together over forty of Steinberg's brilliant drawings, along with a selection of objects from the Museum's collection—maps, aerial views, postcards, posters, and more: "cities on paper" of the kind that inspired his unique vision. The exhibition coincides with a retrospective, Saul Steinberg: Illuminations, at the Morgan Library and Museum.
