1945 Retro Hugo finalists and 2020 Hugo finalists in the Artist categories

I don't know much about art, but I know what I like. Here are my favourite pieces from the artists on this year's Hugo and Retro Hugo ballots - for 1945 artists, I'm giving two full pieces each, and for 2020 artists, it'll be a part of one favourite work,

1945 Retro Hugo finalists, Best Professional Artist

Earle K. Bergey - specialises in impressively cleavaged ladies being defended from horror by dynamic chaps.

Margaret Brundage: her only work this year was in the May 1944 Weird Tales, cover and some internal art.

Boris Dolgov: also mostly Weird Tales, quite atmospheric, nothing in colour this year as far as I can see.

Matt Fox: a bit more into the eldritch horrors.

Paul Orban: more thoughtful perhaps.

William Timmins: seems to have done the only planetscapes I have found (maybe I didn't look hard enough).
