Selina Trieff was an American artist who painted and exhibited for over fifty years. Trieff painted archetypal figures in a flattened and heavily delineated manner, which acted at once as self-portraits and allegories for the human condition. She developed her singular style of figuration through her strong abstract roots which continued to evolve throughout her life. Although she most often painted figures and animals, Trieff considered herself an abstract artist. Among her animal paintings are Green Goat with Moon (1983), Two Figures with Goat (1997), Three Figures with Green Goat (1992) and Connected (1996).
