Reinganum, Victor

Tagged: Art

(1907-1995) UK artist associated with British Surrealism (see Illustration) before 1940, and an illustrator well-known for his work outside the sf field, including most of the early novels, some of fantasy interest, of Muriel Spark [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below]; but under-utilized in sf proper. He did acknowledge covers for Robert Lindner's The Jet-Propelled Couch (1955), Paul Capon's Into the Tenth Millennium (1956) and Henri Queffélec's Combat contre l'invisible (1958; trans Jonathan Griffin as Frontier of the Unknown 1960); it is assumed that further sf work remains uncredited. His work tends to biomorphic abstraction, rather like some of the earlier work of Richard Powers, though Reinganum had little interest in perspective. [JC]
