Saul Steinberg
Entre les lignes

Ends in 3 months: September 29, 2021 → February 28, 2022

From Bertoldo, the satirical review, to his long-standing collaboration with The New Yorker, it is in his press drawings that the American artist Saul Steinberg (1914–1999) forged his immediately recognisable style through which, in the guise of a poetic lightness, he questions customs and habits.

The tour of the exhibition progressively explores the artist’s use of symbol writing, his very personal conception of reportage and press drawings, his interest in fakes and imitations, and his musings on identity through the theme of the mask, before finally questioning the autobiographical nature of his work.
