Art 1 – Saul Steinberg – drawing with wit and imagination


Saul Steinberg is a master of witty, imaginative drawings…..


The video shown in class may be an example of early stop animation but the drawings still engage the mind and heart with inventive wit.

Notice how line become shape then form, flat, then 3d….

What was your favorite part?

Did any of his characters remind you of anyone you know?

  1. Some great ideas for up coming art projects came to mind as I was reading the article on Steinberg. I especially want to explore the technique of using photographs as backgrounds of art work.

  2. I really loved the people drawing each other. they were really cool. The cats were awesome too, they reminded me a little of my cat.
