  1. No, I’m not familiar with Irving Kriesberg, which is odd because he was in the circle with other artists whom I have read about and yet I seemed to have skipped over Kriesberg. Thank you for the link, I’ll have to do a little reading about him.

    • I am curious to know who the other artists are that you mention. Irving was very fascinating in that he was steeped in both Eastern and Western artistic theory. Animals became a very personal way for him to communicate modern and post-modern humanist concepts.
