here are three examples of Krigstein's commercial art work from 1957.
the first piece accompanied a New York Times article, dated September 29th, 1957.
the second is an ad for Purofied pillows
and the third is an illustration of an orchestra for an unknown client. even when presented with a piece that required detailed rendering of dozens of players, Krigstein went above and beyond the call of duty, rendering each band member with a unique physical personality in a loose, impressionistic drawing style.
