Gregory Paul is perhaps the most influential paleoartist. As the poster child for the ‘Dinosaur Renaissance’ in the late 1970s and early ’80s, his reconstructions and artwork redefined how dinosaurs were portrayed. He is also unusual in that his influence is not just artistic but also scientific; he has renamed several dinosaurs (and has had two named after him), and has been active in such fields as dinosaur physiology and thermodynamics.
