    Description

    Alan Bean Signed Limited Edition "Lunar High Five" Giclée Canvas, #AP 14/15, with Handwritten Letter of Transmittal from Bean. A 16" x 19" fine art color canvas print on a wooden stretcher issued in 2000 from an original acrylic painting by Bean, signed lower left in gold: "Alan Bean/ Apollo 12/ AP 14/15". Bean describes this work: "Being on the Ocean of Storms was not luck, but a result of careful and dedicated work by thousands or engineers and scientists back on planet Earth. We were so happy and excited about getting ready to do the productive work we had trained long and hard to do, that a high-five would have felt just right." Includes Certificate of Authenticity from Greenwich Workshop, the issuing gallery. Beautiful, as-issued.

    Included with this lot is a 2001-dated handwritten and signed letter from Alan Bean on his personal letterhead reading, in full: "Dear Larry: Here are your two prints. I think you will be very pleased with both. I know I like them a lot. I've sent you #14 of 'Lunar High Five' as it is the closest number to #16 I received. There were only 15 Artist Proofs made and #15 got away from the Greenwich Workshop somehow early on. I hope 2001 is going well for you. It is for me. I'm just glad to be alive, healthy, and with energy to do worthy work. Alan".
