From his arrival in Manhattan in 1942 until his final work for The New Yorker nearly 60 years later, Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) was one of New York City's most creative and beloved artists. Trained in architecture, a satirist by nature, and a peerless anthologist of graphic techniques, he 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.
Funding for A City on Paper is generously provided by Charles River Fund, Melvin R. Seiden in honor of Rowan Richard Drant, the Ferris Foundation, PaceWildenstein, Condé Nast Publications, and CDS Gallery.
