Virgil Finlay (1914 - 1971)

Virgil Warden Finlay was born in Rochester, New York, United States, in 1914. He was a pulp fantasy, science fiction and horror illustrator. While he worked in a range of media, from gouache to oils, Finlay specialized in, and became famous for, detailed pen-and-ink drawings accomplished with abundant stippling, cross-hatching, and scratchboard techniques. Despite the very labor-intensive and time-consuming nature of his specialty, Finlay created more than 2600 works of graphic art in his 35-year career.
The Science Fiction Hall of Fame inducted Finlay in 2012.
