Henry Steig (1906-1973) was a man of many talents. He was a jazz musician, author, sculptor, journalist, commercial artist, screenwriter, cartoonist (as “Henry Anton”), painter, and a renowned jewelry maker with his own shops in New York City and Provincetown, Massachusetts. His store at 590 Lexington Avenue at 52nd Street was immortalized as the background for the famous scene in The Seven Year Itch when Marilyn Monroe’s dress blew up while she was standing on a subway grate. Steig’s brother William was a cartoonist for The New Yorker and other magazines.
