I’ve been obsessed with the artwork on Show Of Hands, and I’ve never been able to find out what art style it is. Does anyone have any knowledge of what it could be?

Welcome to the forum Vapoo

I'm not good with art terms, but that cover reminds me of a cross between Patrick Nagel and Picasso

Constructivist.


The figures are even called "the rocking constructivists"

It really looks like it has some expressionist influence, but it's also really simplistic.
Expressionist stick figures.

Here's more on constructivism.  Check out the graphic design section to see the influence on drawing and painting.

I totally forgot Hugh Syme wasn't involved with this and now I need to find out why.

How does the "Art Of Rush" cover this album?
