Cartoon exhibition: Saul Steinberg – Illuminations

Twenty Americans by Saul Steinberg, from Illuminations

An exhibition entitled Saul Steinberg: Illuminations is at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London from November 26 until February 15.

It features a retrospective collection of more than 100 works by the Romanian-born American cartoonist whose work was a major part of the New Yorker magazine for six decades, a period in which he drew more than 1,200 covers and editorial illustrations.

The exhibition covers the whole range of his work, from high art to low, from murals to magazines and from caricature to cartography.
