Schumacher: Saul Steinberg

Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) was a reknowned artist and illustrator best known for his work for The New Yorker. He worked in all sorts of media including textiles and wallpaper. Schumacher has reproduced three of his prints as both fabric and wallcoverings.

Views of Paris (above) is a 54″ wide 100% cotton.

Opera is a 70″ wide 100% cotton, available in two colorways.

Aviary was originally designed as wallpaper by artist Saul Steinberg in the 1950s. It is a 54″ wide cotton, and true to its 50s origins it has a chinz finish. It comes in two colorways.

See this post on Retro Renovation — a design director who worked with Schumacher, Greef, and Designers Walk in the 1950s has some interesting bits of history on these designs and the companies.
