National Geographic News:  Dinosaurs
<< Previous   6 of 7   Next >>
In early illustrations, dinosaurs were often portrayed as lumbering, upright, tail-dragging behemoths. The Hadrosaurus above is a black-and-white print of a 1909 color painting by Charles R. Knight in the American Museum of Natural History. It was used to illustrate an article in the National Geographic magazine of May 1919. New discoveries and research into how dinosaurs lived and died has changed our understanding of what they might have looked like. Artists use the latest information, study living animals, and deploy computers to produce dinosaur portraits that are like mini documentaries.
