    Description

    Alan Bean Signed Limited Edition "Mother Earth" Giclée Canvas., #33/125. A 10" x 12" color canvas print on a wooden stretcher from an original acrylic painting by Bean, signed lower right in black ink: "Alan Bean/ 33/125". Framed to an overall 10.25" x 12.25". Greenwich Workshop COA included. Minor scratches on frame, otherwise excellent.

    Bean describes this work: "The planet Earth seemed a long way off in this scene, because it was-- about a quarter of a million miles, in fact. From the Moon, the Earth appeared as a beautiful blue-and-white marble with occasional small, orange areas which were deserts. The Moon itself was a foreboding place when viewed from orbit, mostly gray with stark, angular mountains and deep, rough canyons and craters. It was as if nature had pounded it again and again with a big, big hammer. In contrast, our Earth was beautiful-- all shiny and bright. It was hard to believe that everybody I had ever known-- or even seen on TV-- and the places they lived and played were all on that little blue-and-white marble. Even today, it's still hard to believe."
