Description


Magnificent original painting by renowned cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, accomplished in watercolor on an 11 x 7.5 sheet of artist's paper, signed on the right side in graphite. The artwork depicts Pavel Belyayev and Alexei Leonov in the space suits as they're being given command of the historic Voskhod 2 mission by Sergei Korolev, Chief Designer of the Soviet space program. Attractively double-matted and framed to an overall size of 18 x 14.75; Leonov has also inscribed the painting on the back with the subject matter, "Before the start, Voskhod 2." In fine condition. The Voskhod 2 mission was a resounding success for the Soviet space program, with Leonov becoming the first person ever to leave a spacecraft and conduct an extravehicular activity, or spacewalk. An exceptional work of art from one of space exploration's foremost artists.
