      SAUL STEINBERG (1914-1999) THE NEW YORKER. 1976.
      42 1/4x29 inches, 107 1/4x73 3/4 cm. The New Yorker Magazine, Inc., New York.
      Condition A. Hand-signed and numbered 71/100 by the artist in pencil. Paper.
      Steinberg worked for The New Yorker for nearly 60 years, during which time he created almost 90 covers and over 1200 drawings for the magazine. The concept and rendering of this image are a perfect demonstration of Steinberg's sense of the absurd, which was an instrumental part of his work. This image is by far his most famous. It originally appeared as a cover of the magazine on March 29, 1976, and became so popular that it was issued in this poster format.
