Description


Original color painting entitled "Jovian Impact" by Don Dixon, 16 x 20, signed in the lower left corner in white, "D." This painting appeared as Plate XI in Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan's 1985 book Comet, and is described as follows: 'A comet streaks into the jovian atmosphere, penetrating below the clouds. Because of its size, and the orbits of the Jupiter family of comets, the largest planet receives comparatively many such impacts.' Matted and framed to an overall size of 22.5 x 26.5. In fine condition. Born in 1951, Dixon is known for his space art in the tradition of Chesley Bonestell. His artwork has appeared on the covers of many publications including Scientific American, Sky and Telescope, Omni, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Astronomy Magazine.
