On what would have been his 100th birthday, the Jewish Museum pays tribute to New Yorker cartoonist and children’s author William Steig (1907–2003). Untitled (Page of Faces), one of about 190 illustrations up in the exhibition beginning this weekend, features a cast of Picasso-esque mugs with flushed cheeks, piggish noses, and vampire fangs. —Rachel WolffThe Many Faces of ‘New Yorker’ Cartoonist William Steig
