Pauline Baynes vs. Eyvind Earle

I can't help but wonder if they were inspired by one another, or even aware of one another. Surely they were aware of each other, they were both making stunning, medieval artwork at exactly the same time (50's and 60's). I suppose they were working in different mediums. Anyway, I think the similarities are pretty remarkable.
