First my question:

What is the name of the standard artwork on the hobbit cover?



There is not a name for this artwork, Tolkien did the artwork himself before the 1st UK printing in 1937 and he is also designed the bindings of the book.

If you are interested in seeing how he did it, then look at Findegil's definitive reference book on the subject "The Art of the Hobbit", and if you don't already have a copy, then you should remedy this as soon as possible.
