Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) was a Romanian-born American cartoonist and illustrator, best known for his work in The New Yorker. His unique visual language and satirical drawings made him one of the 20th century's most celebrated artists. Steinberg's work encompassed a wide range of mediums and styles, from intricate line drawings to bold, abstract compositions. While he described himself primarily as a writer who drew, his innovative illustrations blurred the boundaries between fine art and cartooning. His most iconic work, "View of the World from 9th Avenue," humorously portrayed New York's self-centered perspective of the world, emphasizing the city's profound cultural presence.
