William D. Berry
“His snorkeling Diplodocus pair is the most evocative such portrayal ever achieved.” – Greg Paul
Berry, well known for his Alaskan Wildlife artwork, also had a secret talent for depicting dinosaurs. In the 1960’s Berry was hired to paint dinosaur reconstructions for exhibits being installed in the Quarry Exhibit Hall. Due to Berry’s attention to detail and ability to accurately represent the creatures, his artwork resulted in “the most life-like dinosaur images achieved up to that time” (Paul, 2000).
The captions for each photograph has been created based on the notation on the back of the original artwork. Although some of the paintings are no longer accurate due to recent science discoveries, they all represent paleontological illustrations that were ahead of their time.
