What Is This Style Called?,

that really is what I am talking about. It is a fantasy picture, and like other retro paintings like it, it has that style. The reason I am asking is because I am an "artist" of a different type, a graphics programmer. I am writing a GLSL shader and want to try to emulate that style, but I need to know what that style is and some characteristics before I can get started. Thanks.
P.S: I realize the origin of the picture is unrelated to the topic, as it is a random 80's album cover I have never really heard, but I found the picture when searching Google for "sky murals", and then it sparked my imagination.
C dominates the world of linear procedural computing, which won't advance. The future lies in MASSIVE parallelism.

I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me. I also love pet-breeding games.

If that's the case, that style could be considered neo-romanticism or neo-surrealism, depending on what kind of subject matter you're looking for.
Me thinks you might have better luck looking in neo-surrealism as it leans more toward fantastic elements like those found on cover art and stuff.
Hope this helps!
