Fantasy(??) illustrator
May 17, 2016 6:08 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a new of an illustrator who is reminiscent of landscape shots on this page (under "Want a quick...", particularly shots 3 and 5). I do strongly remember the artist producing a landscape that involved heavy silhouetting, rolling hills (or a bridge?), and bright, purple-blue-green colours. Who might this classic (pre-Internet) illustrator be?

For some reason my brain associates him or her with the '50s-'70s, possibly Scandinavian, possibly somehow connected to Tolkien. All of those details may be wrong.

Googling got me nothing.

Not quite the right era, but Maxfield Parrish?

And cross referencing Maxfield Parrish and Tolkien I got the Hildebrant brothers, which seem closer to the non-art-related details and with a similar style.

Roger Dean? It would be hard to get more "60's and 70's fantasy landscape" than him - he did album covers for Yes.

It's a bit of a stretch, but Moebius?
