Chair by Saul Steinberg for Flair

Chair by Saul Steinberg for Flair

Saul Steinberg was born in Romania and studied in Bucharest and Milan. Architecture was among his studies. He specialized in Photo-drawings hybrids. These hybrid photo-drawings come in two forms: photographs (and occasionally old engravings) whose original subjects—furniture, appliances, street excavations, crumbled paper—take on new identities through the addition of drawn lines; and drawings on furniture, objects, sidewalks, or buildings, which were then photographed to record their new mutations.

Steinberg created the first of these photoworks for the short-lived magazine Flair, where they appeared as inset booklets in two issues.

And then you find yourself in the Anker Brotfabrik in Vienna where part of the premises are rented by Ernst Hilger, partly as a dependance for his Galery in the Dorotheer Gasse number 5, right in the center of Vienna and partly to show his own collection of Modern Art. Kindly we were shown around by his assistant Michaela Pedratscher who showed us this chair….And then you remember the name Patricia Piccinini….partly because you have seen earlier work of her…. and partly because you have taken earlier photo’s of her work…

Update: My first encounter with Patricia Piccinini was 10 years ago when she showed work in the now sadly discontinued The Hague Sculpture (Open Air Sculpture Exhibition):
