"Perfectly captures the eerie quality of a moon walk." - Earl Speas -
In celebration of its 50th anniversary in 2008, NASA collaborated with the Smithsonian Institution's Traveling Exhibition Service and the National Air and Space Museum on the exhibition NASA | ART: 50 Years of Exploration. Drawn from works from the museum and the NASA Art program, the exhibition featured approximately 50 paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, and other media ranging from the illustrative to the abstract.
This original unframed gouache painting of a lone astronaut during a moonwalk is comparable in quality to those exhibited NASA artworks. It comes from the estate of a collector who worked for NASA during the 1970s. Gouache paint is similar to watercolor but modified to make it an opaque painting medium rather than the layered transparent look of watercolor paintings.
