Re: 600 pictures by Zdeněk Burian



Utterly inspirational stuff. When I was a kid I always wondered who Burian was.

The photographic rendering brought an artistry unseen previously in paleo illustration.

Thanks for posting this.  I'm glad that a great deal of his 'early man' and 
adventure story illustrations are here!  His figurative work is top notch.  One 
can clearly see Frazetta being influenced by many of them.  Burian's narratives 
were always engaging.  My favorite is the one where a sculptor has just 
finished carving the Venus of Wellendorf, and behind him beaming with pride is 
his curvaceous  model/muse.  In the background people are curiously approaching.
