Alan Bean,Artist and Astronaut
Captain Alan Bean was the lunar module pilot on Apollo 12, the fourth man to walk on the moon and commander of Skylab 2. “I am fortunate enough to have seen sights no other artist ever has,” Bean says. “I want my paintings to communicate an emotional experience in ways that photography cannot.” Captain Bean creates his original works of art using a unique technique allowing the viewer to actually sense vestiges of the 20th century’’’’s most dramatic accomplishments. Pressed into the canvas surfaces are Captain Bean’’’’s authentic lunar boot “moonprints,” impressions from a core tube-bit used to collect soil samples and marks from a hammer used to drive the staff of the American flag into the moon’’’’s surface. Moon dust, trapped on the patches on the outside of his suit, makes its way onto each original as well. Each print and canvas is an historical record of the lunar experience, as each is signed by moonwalker Captain Alan Bean, with most countersigned by other moonwalkers and astronauts.This may be your only chance to own such a visionary and historic celebration of man’’’’s greatest achievement. NASA was sometimes asked “Why not send an artist to the moon?” It turns out they did
  • When he wasn’’’’t flying, Bean always enjoyed painting as a hobby. Attending night classes at St. Mary’’’’s College in Maryland in 1962, Alan experimented with landscapes. During training and between missions as a test pilot and astronaut, he continued private art lessons. On space voyages, his artist’’’’s eye and talent enabled him to document impressions of the Moon and space to be preserved later on canvas. His art reflects the attention to detail of the aeronautical engineer, the respect for the unknown of the astronaut and the unabashed appreciation of a skilled painter.
