Reinganum, Victor

In addition to illustrations for record covers, book jackets, and his own surrealist paintings, Reinganum (1907-1995) contributed cover illustrations to Britain's Radio Times magazine over a period of four decades.Edward Ardizzone said of Victor Reinganum, "He is to art what Roy Plomley is to biography."  Reinganum described himself as an "illustrator/painter" and occasionally as a "pen man", because the pen determined the precision of his forms and black emerged as the richest and the most persistent of his colours.
