Steinberg at Centre Pompidou

On view through 22 February at the Centre Pompidou in Paris is an exhibition that delves into the refreshingly refined graphic humor of Saul Steinberg, the brilliant Romanian American cartoonist who gave a new twist to illustration and the journalistic caricature with his unmistakable lignes claires (see Arquitectura Viva 68). From his first steps in the satirical weekly newspaper Bertoldo, published in fascist Italy while he was studying architecture (to never practice it), to his long collaboration with The New Yorker, Steinberg managed to create a manner of expression that was elegantly caustic and in a class of its own, impervious to all conventional codes.
