Saltz, senior art critic for the New York magazine and Vulture, won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for criticism and a 2019 National Magazine Award. 

Known for his witty and provocative style, Saltz has been called “a critic of the people” by Architectural Digest for attracting a broader audience to fine art while celebrating works by long-overlooked artists.
