I completely forgot he did Historical illustrations as well, Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance, etc.

But I do recognize his fantasy art styles from a story book when I was growing up years ago. I really love his Arabian Nights and Medieval Fantasy paintings in children's books. I even liked his old Egyptian "Tarot Card" illustrations.

I salute Baraldi, an extremely versatile and talented artist for sure.

Check this out … He even did this "Ape Canyon" painting for a British Magazine.

It reminds me a lot of Mort Kunstler's early Pulp work.

True. Very true. Some of his work does look like Angus' early style as well.

Yes,thanks, I was not really aware of this artist. Lots to investigate. Here's one I like:

Funny you should be posting this,as I was just thinking,in the past couple of days,about the Golden books that played a big role in my five-to-seven-year-old imagination,and wondering who the artists were. This led me to another artist whose style evolved radically over his career: Gustaf Tenggren. He went through early Arthur Rackham-inspired work:

Through classic work for Disney:

And then to the Golden Book era, including the one that sparked my seach:

I discovered that some of my favorite Giant Golden Books,as a child,were by him:

Quite a change of styles.

EDIT: I hope you'll consider this a "trade", rather than a hijack!

Tenggren, wow that brings back lots of childhood memories too!

Thanks.

Dan
PS. Their work on Arabian Nights illustrations was extremely compatible. Neither one's style was set in stone.

Huh. That's interesting.

Of course,he did the art for the highest-selling hardback children's book of all time:

15 million copies--wow.

Another early one:

I wonder what he might have done with The Hobbit?

At least the "early" style. Tolkien despised Disney, but he admired Rackham. I don't recall his ever referring to Tenggren,so I don't know what he thought of him.

Tolkien would have been interesting.

Some fantastic artwork there. I love the seated magician.

I had never heard of this illustrator, but his work is very good. I wish I had encountered him in my childhood.
