Color 29.5 x 16 print of a painting by Chesley Bonestell entitled 'Exploring Mars,' which depicts several astronauts and machines on the Martian terrain, signed in the lower right in pencil by the artist. Matted and framed to an overall size of 36.5 x 23. In fine condition. This is one of only two signed print editions that were produced by Bonestell before his passing in 1986 at the age of 98. This painting was originally used for the 1956 book The Exploration of Mars, which featured articles by space notables like Willy Ley, Fred Lawrence Whipple, and Dr. Joseph Kaplan. The articles focused on Wernher von Braun's plans for manned spaceflight, and were originally published as part of the 'Man Will Conquer Space Soon!' articles in Collier's Magazine.
