Autogeography

Saul Steinberg, 1966

The large 1966 drawing that Steinberg titled Autogeography is a hybrid landscape-map. “Over a plain meanders the river of Steinberg’s life, weaving among dozens of place names sized and sited according to the vagaries of fond or bitter memory: Râmnicu Sărat (‘a place invented for me to be born in’); Tashkent and Tuba City (‘where I bought a hat’), Riverhead and Calcutta, Milan and New York. Here, as so often in a career spanning six decades, Steinberg used a language of his own devising to recreate the world in his own image.” (http://saulsteinbergfoundation.org/essay/view-of-the-world-from-9th-avenue/)
