Re: PALEONEWS:John Lanzendorf paleoart collection
Honored Person Betty Cunningham writes
<< In keeping with the media hype surrounding Sue, The Chicago Tribune had
a Sunday piece on the John Lanzendorf paleoart collection (the largest
private collection of dinosaur art, so I hear). Many dinosaur list
subscribed artists have art in his collection.>>
And some dino list members, namely Honored Person Holz commenting cogently on
Honored Person David Krentz's Gorgosaurus, have work contained in the
Academic Press publication of a book showcasing the Lanzendorf collection.
The book is called "Dinosaur Imagery", and is a must for any paleo-artsy
type...the emphasis on sculpture in John's collection and thus in the book is
a real treat; sort of like Remington meets the Mesozoic.
I just turned on the Early Show and saw the spectacular mount of Sue which
goes on display today, and some mention made by the museum director
concerning formerly unknown Tyrannosaurus rex bones prompts a question.
Which post-cranial elements of this skeleton are new? This may have been
covered in the archives, and if so I apologize for the redundancy.
