Borisography - logo, Boris Vallejo & Borisography

Welcome to the new Borisography

Conceived in Perth, Western Australia, by Hercules Gunter in the early '90s, the Borisography is THE definitive guide to the artwork of Boris Vallejo and currently illustrates over 1500 of them – it is probably the most complete guide to his art. Although the Alphabetic Index is devoted entirely to Boris' solo and collaborative work, a significant amount of other artists' work (mainly that of his wife,Julie Bell) does appear in the many non-Index pages.

Please be aware that this site is currently very Internet unfriendly - to preserve image quality I have used a low compression ratio for the thumbnail JPGs. Since a number of pages contain something of the order of 100 or more images this could result in very slow download times. I may change this if I get lots of complaints or, alternatively, you could download the site for offline viewing (I use the open source utility HTTrack for such purposes.)

One final point, this site is intended only as an index of Boris' artwork, not as a source of images. What you see here is what you get - there are no larger images available!

This is the master index.

This is a major project – the site is now largely complete but not all pages are active – please accept my apologies if the page you want is missing.


Acknowledgements:

New Borisography

Thanks are due to:
Geoneasha at artfantastix.com for permission to use some of his/her scans thereby enabling me to get this site up and running much sooner than expected.
Hercules Gunter for his concept of The Borisography and all his hard work in setting up the original site(s) most of which is incorporated here.
Since this site is dependent on the earlier versions it is only fair to include Hercules' original acknowledgements (and the sentiments therein…)

Original Borisography

These pages were prepared by Hercules Gunter of Western Australia, and extensively corrected and updated by Bernard Rogers (typos and factual corrections.) Technically, I suppose, I own copyright to the layout and text of these pages. Since this is merely a documentation of the work of a great artist, this is something of a nonsense. Feel free to copy these pages as you see fit (someone has suggested that they would be useful as an index to one's own collection of images if one added links to the full-size images.)

I offer thanks to the following people, who have helped me correct my work or provided additional information for inclusion in the Borisography:

Really Major Contributors:

Bernard M Rogers, UK
Mike Lewis, USA
Larry Kinney, USA

Other Contributors

Adrian Heath, UK
Damian Sheiles, Western Australia
Sergey Okun, Russia
Evgeniy Nikolaenko, Russia
Paul Leonard, Australia
Geert Damhoff, Netherlands
Diana Hunter, (USA?)

And, of course, I offer my gratitude and deep admiration to The Master himself, Boris Vallejo, for all the pleasure his work has brought to me and to so many others, and for all the beauty he has captured for us to enjoy.

 

And Finally…

It is inevitable with a project of this size that some errors will arise. If you spot any mistakes* I shall be grateful if you could inform me. I would also be pleased to receive any additional information or your comments, good or bad. (If the latter, please don't be too harsh - this is my first attempt at a website.)

You may contact me at berrog@borisography.org.

* Please note that not all links are yet working – these should be resolved over the next few months as the relevant pages are added.
