Saul Steinberg (1914 – 1999) was a Romanian / American cartoonist and illustrator, best known for his work for The
New Yorker magazine, most notably “View of the World from 9th Avenue.” He described himself as "a writer who draws.”
Steinberg’s long, multifaceted career encompassed works in many media and appeared in different contexts. In addition to magazine publications and gallery art, he produced advertising art, photo-works, textiles, stage sets, and murals.
He is best described as a “modernist without portfolio, constantly crossing boundaries into uncharted visual territory. In subject matter and styles, he made no distinction between high and low art, which he freely conflated in an oeuvre that is stylistically diverse yet consistent in depth and visual imagination.” 
After Steinberg's death on May 12, 1999, The Saul Steinberg Foundation was established in accordance with the artist's will. The Foundation’s mission is "to facilitate the study and appreciation of Saul Steinberg's contribution to20th-century art” and to "serve as a resource for the international curatorial-scholarly community as well as the general public".

For full biographical notes on Steinberg see part 1, and for earlier works, see parts 1 - 8 also.
