Rubber Stamp and Pencil on Paper

The medium is rubber stamp and pencil on paper. That alone might be enough to clue you in that the artist is Saul Steinberg. Executed in 1968, there is no evidence in the current Sotheby's Paris listing that this intriguing image was ever published. Given the practical limitations of the medium (and I suspect there must be some pen and ink in it as well), the composition has a complex geometry and flow. It will go up on the auction block on September 27 with a presale estimate of 4,000-6,000 Euros.
