Jonathan Steinberg Father – Saul Steinberg
Saul Steinberg (June 15, 1914 – May 12, 1999) was a Romanian American painter best known for his work for The New Yorker, particularly View of the World from 9th Avenue. He referred to himself as “a writer who draws.”
Steinberg was born to a Jewish family in Râmnicu Sărat, Buzău County, Romania. He enrolled at the University of Bucharest in 1932. He enrolled in the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1933 to study architecture, and he graduated in 1940.
He began contributing cartoons to the satirical newspaper Bertoldo in 1936. Two years later, the Fascist government’s anti-Semitic racial laws forced him to seek refuge in another country.
He fled to the Dominican Republic in 1941, where he stayed for a year while waiting for a US visa. His drawings had already appeared in several US periodicals by that point; his first contribution to The New Yorker was published in October 1941.
Steinberg arrived in New York City in July 1942 and was quickly commissioned in the US Naval Reserve before being seconded to the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).
In China, North Africa, and Italy, he worked for the Morale Operations division. He married the Romanian-born painter Hedda Sterne after being shipped back to Washington in 1944.
Steinberg continued to publish drawings in The New Yorker and other magazines after WWII, including Fortune, Vogue, Mademoiselle, and Harper’s Bazaar. Simultaneously, he began an exhibition career in galleries and museums.
He participated in the critically acclaimed “Fourteen Americans” exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1946, alongside Arshile Gorky, Isamu Noguchi, and Robert Motherwell, among others.
Steinberg went on to have over 80 one-person shows in galleries and museums across the United States, Europe, and South America.
He worked at the Betty Parsons and Sidney Janis galleries in New York, as well as the Galerie Maeght in Paris. A dozen museums and institutions have extensive collections of his work, and examples can be found in over eighty other public collections.
He and Sterne divorced in 1960, but remained close.
Steinberg’s long and varied career included works in a variety of media and appearances in a variety of contexts. He created advertising art, photoworks, textiles, stage sets, and murals in addition to magazine publications and gallery art.
Given his multifaceted output, it is difficult to place his work within the canons of postwar art history. “I don’t quite belong to the art, cartoon, or magazine worlds, so the art world doesn’t quite know where to place me,” he explained.
He can best be described as a “Without a portfolio, he is a modernist who is constantly pushing boundaries into uncharted visual territory. He made no distinction between high and low art in subject matter and styles, which he freely conflated in an oeuvre that is stylistically diverse yet consistent in depth and visual imagination.”
The Saul Steinberg Foundation was established in accordance with the artist’s will after his death on May 12, 1999. The Foundation’s mission is to “encourage the study and appreciation of Saul Steinberg’s contribution to twentieth-century art,” as well as to “serve as a resource for the international curatorial-scholarly community and the general public.”
