z3000: Saul Steinberg - paper masks (1959-65)

Masks by illustrator Saul Steinberg, photographed by Inge Morath in New York, c. 1960.

The works in Le Masque evolved from Saul Steinberg’s famous "masks": brown-paper cut-outs or paper bags on which he drew all manner of faces to disguise himself and his friends, and then had the motley characters photographed by Inge Morath, alone or in groups, in a variety of interior and outdoor settings.

Funny family photo? I don't know... it could be great... could be horrid... Maybe just for a personal laugh, not for the family christmas card.

Saul Steinberg Steinberg defined drawing as "a way of reasoning on paper," and he remained committed to the act of drawing in an era dominated by large-scale painting and sculpture. Throughout his long career, he used drawing to think about the semantics of art, reconfiguring stylistic signs into a new language suited to the fabricated temper of modern life.
