This biography from the Archives of AskART:

A sculptor and medal designer, Kreis was born in 1899 in Essen, Germany.  After high school, he became an apprentice to a stone carver, and later studied at the State School of Applied Arts in Munich.

In 1933, he immigrated to the U.S., studying at the Beaux Arts Institute of Design and later with Paul Manship, while earning a living as a stone cutter.  Kreis was WPA artist during the Depression, and served as a faculty member of the Hartford Art School (Connecticut).

Kreis received numerous prizes and awards for his work (including the Saltus Medal from the American Numismatic Society),  and his sculptures are on view in public and private buildings in Washington, D.C. and New York City.  Among the medals Kreis designed are those commemorating the Connecticut Tercentenary and the New York Worlds Fair, as well as coins for the United States.
