Hugely desirable original felt tip sketch of an Apollo astronaut saluting against a black background, with the reflected image of an American flag in the visor redolent of Alan Bean's 1987 painting An American Success Story. Accomplished on a white 8.25 x 11 cardstock sheet in black felt tip by Bean, who signs and inscribes below, "To Nolan & Wendy, Alan Bean, Apollo XII, 2-7-99." In fine condition. According to Bean, the painting 'An American Success Story,' published by the Greenwich Workshop as a limited edition canvas in 2006, 'shows Astronaut John Young in April of 1972 as he stood proudly on the moon.' The first piece of original Alan Bean artwork we have offered.
