Description

Massive celestial paintings from NASA artist Renato Moncini

Italian-American artist who worked for NASA during the 1960s, creating technical drawings for various projects as well as conceptual art for the Apollo space missions. Several of his paintings can be viewed at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Astounding pairing of original paintings by former NASA resident artist Renato Moncini, both oil on hardboard, 60 x 39.5, signed in the lower left corner in paint by Moncini. Both paintings depict a pair of astronauts conducting experiments on the lunar surface, several space ships and capsules floating near the Earth and the moon, with one painting showing astronauts performing various EVAs. Both framed and in overall very good to fine condition, with slight warping and scuffing to the painting, and light damage to the original frames. Oversized.
