Virgil Finlay

Virgil Finlay was born in Rochester, New York in 1914. He was self-taught and became well-known through illustrations for the magazine 'Weird Tales', edited by Farnsworth Wright. Finlay's art is distinctive for his use of scratchboard, particularly well-suited to the demands of pulp printing, which used very coarse paper of poor quality. He died in 1971.
