Although Steinberg's PhD was from an American university, he was actually born and raised in Moscow and Berlin. Thus he was from a brilliant line of central European students who came to dominate 20th century art history teaching and writing. And I am not ignoring his studies at the Slade School of Fine Art in London - I simply want to focus on his formative years as a scholar.

People often compare Steinberg to Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg. In many ways, I prefer Steinberg's writing. RIP

Thanks Hels for your comment.

I don't know much about Steinberg's background. I must try reading his writings on modern art, especially as an antidote to Greenberg.

Steinberg's analysis of Leonardo's "Last Supper" is also a must read for any student of the Renaissance.

Hi Frank,

I can't think how I missed the Leonardo book, especially as I've got a copy!

Sounds like an interesting fellow.

I must track down that Leonardo book. Did he write anything on art history as a discipline adapting to the future? - I'd be interested to read that.

90 is a decent innings! Bravo.
