view over my desk

My first purchase for my first apartment after college was a print of this iconic magazine cover. 'View of the World' by Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) graces the wall above my desk to this day. Born in Romania, Steinberg illustrated covers and drew cartoons for The New Yorker for more than 50 years. I love the spirit of his work. Today I discovered an artist of this generation whose drawings fill me with the same sense of delight. Tomorrow I'll tell you about him.
