Steinberg drew famous New Yorker cover

It is the birthday of artist Saul Steinberg (1914), who is best known for his 1976 cover illustration in The New Yorker magazine titled View of the World from 9th Avenue, a mental landscape of Manhattan residents. It was widely published as a poster and became quite popular. It was imitated and parodied for years, including a poster for the 1984 film Moscow on the Hudson, which led to a lawsuit decided in Steinberg's favor. Steinberg worked for The New Yorker for more than 50 years and produced 90 covers and more than 1,200 drawings. Steinberg also created other works of art, including drawings, paintings, prints, collages, and sculptures, exploring society, politics, human foibles, geography, architecture, art, and language.
