    1. Leo Steinberg, born in Moscow, Russia, was an American art critic and art historian and a naturalized citizen of the U.S.Though an important 20th century art critic, Leo Steinberg was also a historian and scholar, particularly of the works of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and other Italian Renaissance artists He had a particular interest in the depiction of Christ in art, but this caused controversy and debate He was also a recognized authority in the field of modern art criticism and produced important work on Pablo Picasso, Jasper Johns and Willem de Kooning Because he had experience as a historian, his work on contemporary artists could place them in historical context One of his most significant essays was Contemporary Art and the Plight of its Public, which appeared in March 1962 in Harper s Magazine.Steinberg took a less than formal approach to criticism, sometimes using a first person narrative in his essays, which personalized the experience of art for readers In many of his writings, he expressed his love for art s ability not only to reflect life but also to become it and commented, Anything anybody can do, painting does better He believed that the difference between modern painting and that of the Old Masters was the viewer s subjective experience of that artwork He also believed that Abstract Expressionist action painters, such as Pollock, were concerned with creating good art than with merely expressing a personal identity on canvas, a point of view contrary to that held by Harold Rosenberg, another American art critic of Steinberg s era.
