Romanian-born Steinberg is best known for his nearly six-decade-long relationship with The New Yorker. Beginning in the 1940s, Steinberg also designed patterns for commercial textile companies in New York that recognized the appeal and salability of his imaginative artwork. He created textiles for Patterson Fabrics, printed wallpaper for the company's affiliate, Piazza Prints, and produced at least one design for Greeff Fabrics. Images available upon request.
