Saul Steinberg's Pyramid #8

Six years ago at Christie's New York, Saul Steinberg's 1968 composition Pyramid #8 sold at auction for the same price, $12,500, as Pyramid #2 did last month. The eighth work in the series has two rubber-stamped figures in the foreground on the right, the side with the smaller, shaded pyramid face. The lines of that right pyramid face point toward the figures, which creates an area of visual focus apart from the main horizontal sweep.
