DescriptionAlan Bean Signed Limited Edition "Heavenly Reflections" Print, also Signed by Charles Conrad, #137/850. A 27" x 21" color lithograph issued in 1996 from an original 1990 acrylic painting, signed by both Apollo 12 moonwalkers beneath the image: "Charles Conrad Jr" and "Alan L Bean". Included with this lot is the original Certificate of Authenticity and storage portfolio from Greenwich Workshop, the issuing gallery. Excellent.
Bean describes this work: "I have painted Pete Conrad and myself 239,000 miles from Earth, standing on the Ocean of Storms, looking homeward. Pete and I had come a long way together. We had met some ten years before. I was a student in Navy test pilot school and Pete was one of my instructors. I admired him for his professional skills and for his relaxed, colorful attitude. He is the best astronaut I have ever known. It was incredible to be standing on the Moon with him. It was good to take a moment to reflect on all the dedicated people it took to get us here for America. We were the lucky ones... As I touched Pete's shoulder I thought, can all the people we know, all the people we love, who we've seen on TV, or read about in the newspapers, all be up there on that tiny blue and white marble? Earth is small but so lovely. It is easily the most beautiful object we could see from the Moon. It was a wondrous moment. If there is a God in heaven, this must be what he sees as he looks toward his children on the good Earth."

This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.View More Testimonials
