Dialogue of Sardinia and Paris: Saul Steinberg Original New Yorker Art

My little survey of original New Yorker cover art continues with this disarming example by the brilliant Saul Steinberg. Needless to say, it is not your typical magazine cover from the early 1960's, and it is by no means even a typical New Yorker cover. The remarkable $27,000 price tag five years ago at Bonham's reflects the market's high regard for Steinberg's extraordinary originality and inventiveness.
