the Bernard Krigstein Illustration Archive: 1957 commercial work

part five of HEAD MEDICINE'S Bernard Krigstein Illustration Archive, a collection of over 50 rare illustrations from 1957-58, many never reprinted since their original publication, and scanned directly from tear sheets in the legendary artists' own collection.   for more info on Krigstein and to view the rest of the Archive, click HERE

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.
