We have a vast and growing database of people covering a huge variety of games. In amongst the cross-section of humanity, a few noble souls have slipped into the database that at first glance may surprise you.

Sure, we expect to find such luminaries as Jeff Easley or Gerald Brom here. This GeekList isn't about them. Rather this GeekList aims to gather together those artists whose work graces various games, but who are not known primarily for their gaming work.

Criteria for inclusion:
Famous, a proxy for which is that they should be listed on Wikipedia.
Non-gaming artist, by which their claim to fame should be for art but not for work on games.
Game credits, by which they should be somehow linked to a board game, RPG, or video game.

Feel free to add more names to the list. People are sorted alphabetically.

"William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. ... His visual artistry led one contemporary art critic to proclaim him 'far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced'. In 2002, Blake was placed at number 38 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons."

"Peter Blume (27 October 1906 - 30 November 1992) was an American painter and sculptor. His work contained elements of folk art, precisionism, Parisian Purism, Cubism, and Surrealism. Blume, born in Smarhon, Russia (present-day Belarus) to a Jewish family, emigrated with his family to New York City in 1912; the family settled in Brooklyn. He studied art at the Educational Alliance, the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design, and the Art Students League of New York, establishing his own studio by 1926. ... An admirer of Renaissance technique, Blume worked by drawing and making cartoons before putting his work on canvas."

"Arnold Böcklin (16 October 1827 – 16 January 1901) was a Swiss symbolist painter. ... He is associated with the Düsseldorf school of painting. (Johann Wilhelm) Schirmer, who recognized in him a student of exceptional promise, sent him to Antwerp and Brussels, where he copied the works of Flemish and Dutch masters. Böcklin then went to Paris, worked at the Louvre, and painted several landscapes. ... After serving his time in the army, Böcklin set out for Rome in March 1850. ... Böcklin is best known for his five versions (painted in 1880-1886) of Isle of the Dead, which partly evokes the English Cemetery, Florence, close to his studio and where his baby daughter Maria had been buried. ... Böcklin's paintings, especially Isle of the Dead, inspired several late-Romantic composers."

As a member of the Barbizon School -- a French landscape painting group from the mid-19th century, he created many oil paintings with animal motifs as well as wood engravings, drawings, and book illustrations. Best known in the United States as a painter who captured the American West of the 19th century with extremely accurate depictions of its inhabitants."

"Jan Frans De Boever (Ghent, Belgium, 8 June 1872 - 23 May 1949) was a Flemish Symbolist painter. While considered a successful artist during most of his lifetime, his megalomaniac character made him a solitary and isolated individual. ... Jan Frans De Boever received his training in Ghent at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts... From 1909 onwards, he modified his style radically, painting women and prostitutes in morbid and bizarre settings, with skeletons, diabolism, subservient men and eroticism dominating his paintings. These paintings were allegorical and mythological, reflecting romantic imagery and depicting the universal struggle of good against evil."

From 1911 to 1912, he lived in Munich, working as an illustrator for the magazine Komet. While there, he met Franz Marc and became associated with the painters of the Der Blaue Reiter. In 1914, he was drafted for military service and sent to the front. While there, he was involved in a poison gas attack that left him nearly blind and he was mustered out of service in 1917. From that time on, he concentrated on sculpting, as the tactile element compensated for his lost vision to some extent."

While tending his father's shop, he copied engravings of works by the Old Masters, developing a passion for drawing. ... During his stay in Rome, he became friends with Edgar Degas, Gustave Moreau, Jean-Jacques Henner and the sculptor Henri Chapu. ... Bonnat was quite popular with American students in Paris. ... Bonnat's vivid portraits of contemporary celebrities are his most characteristic works, but his most important works are arguably his powerful religious paintings..."

"Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, better known as Sandro Botticelli or Il Botticello "The Little Barrel", (c. 1445 - May 17, 1510) was an Italian painter of the Florentine school during the Early Renaissance (Quattrocento). ... His posthumous reputation suffered until the late 19th century; since then his work has been seen to represent the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting. Among his best known works are The Birth of Venus and Primavera."

"François Boucher (...29 September 1703 – 30 May 1770) was a French painter, who was a proponent of the Rococo style. Boucher is known for his idyllic and voluptuous paintings on classical themes, decorative allegories, and pastoral scenes. He was perhaps the most celebrated decorative artist of the 18th century. He also painted several portraits of his illustrious patroness, Madame de Pompadour. ... Marquise de Pompadour (mistress of King Louis XV), whose name became synonymous with Rococo art, was a great admirer of his work. ... The neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David began his painting instruction under Boucher."

"William-Adolphe Bouguereau (November 30, 1825 – August 19, 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist. In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body. During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work. As the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avant-garde."

"Gustave Clarence Rodolphe Boulanger (25 April 1824 – October 1888) was a French figure painter known for his classical and Orientalist subjects. Boulanger was born at Paris in 1824. He was orphaned at age 14, and his uncle and guardian subsequently sent him to the studio of Pierre-Jules Jollivet and then to Delaroche in 1840. In 1849 took the Prix de Rome with his painting, Ulysses, a work which combined a classical approach with Orientalist overtones. In 1845, he first visited Algeria and this gave him an interest in Orientalist themes, which was taken up later by his friend Jean-Léon Gérome. ... He began teaching at the Institut de France in 1882 and was an influential teacher, noted for his dislike of the Impressionism."

"Pietro Bouvier (Milan, 16 November 1839 - Milan, 18 November 1927) was an Italian painter. ... His family (was) of Swiss origin. As a young man he was attracted to drawing and art, in fact, he collaborated with his father... Pietro Bouvier expressed himself with the techniques of etching, drawing, watercolor and oil. ... In the early twentieth century his painting changed to devote himself to the landscape... He was also a famous and appreciated portraitist. His works are not very numerous and portray interiors of houses, still lifes (especially floral), as well as his renowned landscapes..." (Translated from Italian)
