Even More Steinberg Murals

In a Facebook discussion the other day involving murals by Charles Addams and Steinberg,  Joel Smith, who authored Steinberg At The New Yorker (Harry N. Abrams, 2005) commented on Paul Karasik‘s Facebook stream that Steinberg created two incredibly long murals: one 260 ft., and another even longer. I asked Mr. Smith where best we might go online to see the murals.  Here are his suggested links:

“The Americans” for the 1958 World’s Fair in Brussels

The Milan Triennial, 1954 (on the timeline, scroll down to 1954, the Milan Triennial)

— photo above: Steinberg on the far right, wearing hat, stands before his mural in Brussels.

From The Dept. Of A Day Late And A Dollar Short: A Steinberg Panel In Brooklyn

An apology: I somehow completely missed this event that took place last night. Posting it here for the record. (My thanks to my New Yorker colleague Bob Eckstein for alerting me).

At Brooklyn’s Powerhouse Arena, Book Launch: The Labyrinth by Saul Steinberg — Discussion With Liana Finck, Bill Kartalopoulos, Francoise Mouly, and Joel Smith

The panel discussed the reprinting of Steinberg’s 1960 collection, The Labyrinth. Their bios can be found on the Powerhouse page.

 

Steinberg biography; new Updike on Art

 

From the Library Journal, their Fall preview lists a third book of observations on art by John Updike, Always Looking: Essays on Art (Knopf). His first two: Just Looking (Knopf, 1989), and Still Looking (Knopf, 2005).

 

Also from The Library Journal,  a listing for Saul Steinberg: A Biography (Nan A. Talese: Doubleday) by Deirdre Bair. This should be fascinating.  According to the Library Journal’s listing, the author was allowed to “rummage through 177 boxes of never-before-seen materials to write this biography.”

Link here for the Library Journal’s post.

Looking for more Steinberg? Harold Rosenberg’s Saul Steinberg (Knopf, 1978) and Joel Smith’s Steinberg at The New Yorker ( Abrams, 2005) are worth seeking out, as are all of Steinbergs collections.
