Description

    Alan Bean Signed Limited Edition "In the Beginning..." Print, Signed by a Total of Twenty Apollo Astronauts, #493/1000. A 23" x 28.5" color lithograph issued in 1994 based on a 1993 acrylic painting by Bean. Around the central artwork of the celebrating astronauts on the moon are the mission insignias of all eleven manned Apollo spaceflights. At least one member of each crew has signed beneath their respective emblem. Apollo 7: "Wally Schirra", "Walt Cunningham". Apollo 8: "Frank Borman". Apollo 9: "Jim McDivitt", "Rusty Schweickart". Apollo 10: "Tom Stafford". Apollo 11: "Buzz Aldrin", "Michael Collins". Apollo 12: "Charles Conrad Jr", "Richard Gordon", "Alan Bean". Apollo 13:"James Lovell", "Fred Haise". Apollo 14: "Alan Shepard", "Stuart Roosa", "Edgar Mitchell". Apollo 15: "Dave Scott", "Al Worden". Apollo 16: "Charlie Duke". Apollo 17: "Harrison H. Schmitt". This represents eight of the twelve moonwalkers and eighteen of the twenty-four moonfliers as well as the complete crews of Apollos 12 and 14. The signatures of James Lovell, Ken Mattingly, and Gene Cernan could potentially be added at a show or private signing. Original Greenwich Workshop folio and certificate included. One tiny stain at lower left would easily mat out. Otherwise excellent.
