Description


Extraordinary original pencil sketch by Alan Bean, 19.25 x 18, signed at the bottom in pencil, “Final drawing for ‘Reaching for the Stars,’ Alan Bean, April ’97, Houston, Texas.” Bean’s final study for the enormous mural he painted in the entrance hall of the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame. The drawing includes the original guide lines Bean drew while in the process of creating the drawing, as well as notations in his hand regarding measurements of the final mural. Attractively triple-matted and framed to an overall size of 27.25 x 26. In fine condition. Accompanied by a printed description of the painting, signed in blue felt tip, “Alan Bean, Artist/Moonwalker, Apollo 12,” in part: “In one sense this is a painting of a universal astronaut, symbolizing everyone who flew in Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, and Apollo-Soyuz…I painted this astronaut, this star sailor, to represent the best in each of us, what we can accomplish, who we can be, if we will create the courage and determination to move in the direction of our dreams.” Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
