Exhibit,Talk Of Interest: Peter Steiner
You’re a lucky duck if you’re in Austria between October 3, 2019 and February 9, 2020 as you’ll be able to see an exhibit of work at the Karikaturmuseum in Krems by Peter Steiner, who drew the cartoon to the right — the most reprinted New Yorker drawing in modern times. His work will be shown with Manfred Deix‘s under the heading “American v. Austrian Humor.” Luckier still if you’re in Austria on October 5th. Mr. Steiner tells the Spill he’ll be in discussion on that date with the museum’s director “about the differences between here [the United States] and there [Austria], comparing my work with that of Manfred Deix.”
