    Saul Steinberg was one of America's greatest graphic artists, celebrated for the clever covers and cartoons that he drew for The New Yorker for over fifty years. Steinberg's drawings, paintings, prints, collages, and sculptures have been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums. His unique art is equally at home on magazine pages and gallery walls, and it cannot be pigeon-holed into a single category or movement. He was a modernist who constantly crossed cultural boundaries to establish new visual realms.
