    Description

    Alexei Leonov and Valentina Tereshkova Signed Limited Edition Leonov "Seagull" Print, #AP 19/95. A 32" x 18" color lithograph print by cosmonaut Leonov depicting a helmeted Tereshkova against the blue horizon with a floating cosmonaut and a group of seagulls around. When she became the first woman in space in 1963 aboard Vostok 6 her call sign was chaika which means seagull. In regards to his 1965 Voskhod 2 spacewalk, Leonov was quoted as saying that he felt "like a seagull with its wings outstretched, soaring high above the Earth". Thus the title of this artwork. Signed in pencil by both at the bottom margin. A great combination of the first woman in space and the first man to do an EVA. Stored rolled. Included with this lot is the original Star Press Documentation Certificate. Very fine.
