Split[edit]

whoever suggested thsi, i'm all for it. i think this article could do with a list of a few artists, but it seems the whole genre is here. peace! Ryan shell (talk) 14:51, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

  • I think at this point it could just as well be left as it is to give the article a bit of length, but I support splitting it when the article gets longer. FunkMonk (talk) 12:48, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Jay Matternes?[edit]

I miss on the list Jay Matternes, to my opinion one of the three most influential paleoartists of last hundred years... (with Knight and Burian) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.207.78.5 (talk) 22:11, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

I added his name to the list as per your suggestion, However Matternes doesnt seem to have an article yet Ryan shell (talk) 00:59, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
created a stub. i dont know if he is influential, but the 2 artists i grew up with were burian and him, during the baby boom era of publishing, so his images were very widely dispersed.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 17:49, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
His Smithsonian murals were prominently featured in some Time-Life books, which I think were quite influential. FunkMonk (talk) 17:59, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Oh well, I see that's basically what you've written in the article! FunkMonk (talk) 18:03, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Usage[edit]

"Paleoart" is also used for "Paleolithic art," that is, prehistoric art. Not sure which usage is more common? Kileytoo (talk) 09:03, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Is it? By what sources? FunkMonk (talk) 11:47, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh, never mind, it seems to be rather informal and not as common as I thought. Kileytoo (talk) 05:16, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Then again, here is a reference: "Palaeoart of the Lower Palaeolithic," Robert G. Bednarik, 2010. Kileytoo (talk) 08:15, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Guthrie (2005) also uses "Paleo-art" as a shorthand for Paleolithic art, for example on p. 52. Kileytoo (talk) 04:15, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
