Gant Gaither, died on February 16, 2004, and according to the New York Time obituary, he was best known as a Broadway producer and founder of the Grace Kelly Foundation, but he was also an artist and "the creator of Zoophisticates, whimsical images that reflected the daily visits he once made to the Central Park Zoo and his childhood love of animals. Zoophisticates are paintings of animals in action, gently mocking the antics of humans. The originals were exhibited internationally and found their way into the private collections of famous people, and the designs were imprinted on signed designer scarves."
