Saul Steinberg Posing with Himself

Saul Steinberg is beside himself--his younger self--in this well-known photograph by Evelyn Hofer from 1976. One of a limited edition of five dye-transfer prints of this image will be sold at Swann Galleries on February 19 in New York. The estimate is $4,000-$6,000. Of course, for that kind of money you just might be able to snag an actual Steinberg drawing.

Evelyn Hofer, Saul Steinberg Posing with Himself, no. 1/5, 1976

February 19, 2015 Update: Sold!

Note:  There's a lot more to see here by and about Saul Steinberg.

I'm shocked to learn that there's even a fair amount of photography on this blog.
