George Barr (artist)

George Barr (born 1937) is a US science fiction and fantasy artist whose work shows influences from Arthur Rackham, Hannes Bok and Virgil Finlay. "The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction" describes him as one of the least appreciated SF/fantasy artists. His work is often romantic and whimsical. His technique involves overlaying pen and ink linework with pastel watercolors. A collection of his paintings, "Upon the Winds of Yesterday and Other Explorations", was published by Donald M. Grant, Publisher, Inc. in 1976.
