“Our image of New York comes from
,” said Pace president Marc Glimcher, amongst a solo booth filled with sculpture and works on paper by the late, legendary cartoonist and illustrator. Indeed, in the 1960s and ’70s, Steinberg’s cartoons—including his New Yorker
commissions, particularly his famous 1976 cover View of the World from 9th Avenue—
shaped how the world saw the city. At Frieze Masters, Pace pays tribute to the artist, beloved by
alike, with work spanning his six-decade career. That includes a mixed-media collage on wood (Summer Table,
1981) which Glimcher says the artist made for his father. Across the booth, works on offer for between $40,000 and $200,000 are paired with objects brought from the late artist’s home—including his rug, coffee table, and a set of wicker chairs.
