Original Project Apollo concept painting by Robert Watts for Teledyne Ryan Aeronautical, accomplished in gouache on 15.25 x 12 illustration board, no date but circa late 1960s/early 1970s. The work shows the Lunar Module on the moon with two astronauts exploring the lunar surface at its feet: one deploys an experiment in the background, while another wheels the Modular Equipment Transporter in the foreground. Signed in the lower right corner in paint, "Robert Watts." A slip affixed to the reverse identifies the artist and designer as Watts, his supervisor as James P. McGowan, and their affiliation as Teledyne Ryan Aeronautical. Double-matted to an overall size of 21 x 18. In fine condition. A detailed and accurate Apollo-era rendering of a fantastic lunar landing scene.
