Photograph of oil and rubber stamp on paper piece. Depiction of a small figure standing on the shore of a beach.
"East Side Sunset" was created during Steinberg's era of landscape postcards that represent our conventional ideas of what landscape paintings should be, but realistically aren't. This postcard is an evolution of that idea from the New Yorker's cover art from September 25, 1971.
UND Art Collections owns 81 copies of this postcard.
