This is another estate sale find. I have had it over two years. I can not find this anywhere. It is signed Saul Steinberg 1951 and does not appear to be a print. It looks to be a Mock up drawing for a book or something. It has page numbers on the bottom, No pixilation noted at all. A True Mystery Find. I need help. Has anyone seen this by Saul Steinberg? 4-Sided drawings. Trains and appears to be a Train Station or something !

    "Il Salotto di Milano"!
    The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is the world's oldest shopping mall. Housed within a four-storey double arcade in central Milan, the Galleria is named after Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of the Kingdom of Italy. It was designed in 1861 and built by Giuseppe Mengoni between 1865 and 1877.

    I think this is called Milano interno Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
    Saul Steinberg
    Saul Steinberg (June 15, 1914 – May 12, 1999) was a Jewish Romanian-born American cartoonist and illustrator, best known for his work for ''The New Yorker'', most notably ''View of the World from 9th Avenue''.

    There's an article here but it's in Italian:
    http://breeze-underworld.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/saul-steinberg-il-cartoonist.html

    Google translate will handle it well.
    Ma otto anni di passeggiate milanesi con un taccuino in una mano e la matita nell’altra, a disegnare le arcate della Galleria Vittorio Emanuele e gli edifici di Città Studi, Piola e Lambrate, avrebbero lasciato un segno su molti dei suoi futuri lavori pubblicati dal «New Yorker».

    I think you did well with this one too!

    That appears to be the name of the drawing on the inside. (Galleria-di-Milano) but to this day, no one has been able to tell me if this is a true mock-up or not. Sotheby's took pictures and sent up to N.Y. and after a couple weeks, stated that it did not look to be a mock up and Could not even tell me what they though it truly was. Or What Book it came out of. You would have though they knew?? So since they didn't. I have too find someone who has seen this Where ever! Please Share, Maybe someone Can Help ! Thanks in Advance Collectors weekly family!
