art that stimulates

While the tongue in cheek work of Saul Steinberg, is from some time ago, (1949), it still seems fresh and modern, (and humorous as well, look closely).
Steinberg was born in Romania in 1914 and passed in 1999, during his long relationship with the New Yorker, (sixty years) he produced 90 covers and 1200 drawings. While most artists favor one media, Steinberg used ink, pencil, charcoal, crayons, watercolor, oil, gouache and even rubber stamps, and ventured into sculpture. See more here. Thanks to here

  2. aren't they just? hard to believe they are from sixty years ago! They seem as relevant today as if they were drawn last week!
