Biography  
Irving Kriesberg


"Irving Kriesberg, Artist of Dreamlike Landscapes, Dies at 90"

 
By MARGALIT FOX
Published in The New York Times, November 18, 2009

Irving Kriesberg, a much-admired American painter whose work combined the intense colors of Abstract Expressionism with haunting images of human and animal forms, died on Nov. 11 at his home in Manhattan.  He was 90.

The cause was complications of Parkinson's disease, his son, Matthias, said.

Where hard-line Abstract Expressionists shunned figural elements in their work, Mr. Kriesberg used them lavishly.  As a result, he was often called a Figurative Expressionist; the term applied to mid-century Expressionists whose work was not strictly abstract.
