Graphic work by 20th century master Saul Steinberg on view at Carl Solway Gallery
Tree Bauhaus, 1964, Lithograph in colors on Rives BFK, 22 1/4 x 29 1/8 inches.


CINCINNATI, OH.- Carl Solway Gallery presents a comprehensive exhibition of 25 Saul Steinberg prints made between 1948 and 1996. Courtesy of the Saul Steinberg Foundation, the exhibition serves as a compliment the Cincinnati Art Museum’s recent installation of the 75 foot Saul Steinberg’s Mural of Cincinnati.

The artist Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) described himself as “a writer who draws.” Best known for his barbed and brilliant drawings for The New Yorker, he did much more. He executed public murals, designed fabrics and stage sets, was an inventive collagist and printmaker; and turned his magic touch to the fields of painting, sculpture, advertising, and even wartime propaganda.

Steinberg was born in Romania. In 1940, he received his degree in architecture. In 1936, he began contributing cartoons to the humor newspaper Bertoldo. Two years later, the anti-Semitic racial laws promulgated by the Fascist government forced him to start seeking refuge in another country. In 1941, he fled to the Dominican Republic, where he spent a year awaiting a US visa. By then, his drawings had appeared in numerous US periodicals.

Steinberg arrived in New York City in July 1942; within a few months he received a commission in the US Naval Reserve. After World War II, Steinberg continued to publish drawings in The New Yorker and other periodicals, including Fortune, Vogue, Mademoiselle, and Harper’s Bazaar. At the same time, he embarked on an exhibition career in galleries and museums. In 1946, he was included in the critically acclaimed “Fourteen Americans” show at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, exhibiting along with Archile Gorky, Isamu Noguchi, and Robert Motherwell, among others. Steinberg went on to have more than 80 solo shows in galleries and museums throughout the UC, Europe, and South America. More than eighty institutions have in-depth public collections of his work, including:

• The Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois
• Centre Pompidou, Paris, France
• Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC
• Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
• The Menil Collection, Houston, Texas
• Morgan Library & Museum, New York
• The Museum of Modern Art, New York
• National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC
• Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.
• Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
• Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut
